The Million Underscores proudly invite you to LAPA, a play written by Russian poet and playwright Daniil Kharms in 1930. 


LAPA is a mesmerizing language machine for the theater following Landman’s journey to pluck a newly formed star called Agam The Swan: “whoever tears down this star may choose to be freed from dreaming.” Treating language with the material curiosity of early abstract artists LAPA exposes the border of language and sound, of poetry and meaning. The Million Underscores stage this genre-bending work, modulating between visual composition, soundscape, performance, and choreography, to emphasize the distance between words, objects, sound, and the body.  Amidst Industrialization, the human ability to reach beyond the terrestrial, and a decrepit heaven, LAPA is a ballad for the end of dreaming.

 LAPA was presented in March 2020 as part of the inaugural season of The Brick 2020.
