About the Program

In Liduin Currell's The Ape: a report to the academy by Franz Kafka, an ape indicates the line he had to follow in entering and establishing himself in the world of men. He learns how to drink and smoke and achieves the "cultural level of an average European." This performance was adapted from Franz Kafka's "A Report to an Academy," first published in Der Jude in 1917 and considered to the counterpart to his short story "Metamorphosis."
