Three Sisters: a tale of dreams and woe
Directed and adapted from seven translations by MBCT Artistic Director Miriam Tobin and fully titled Three Sisters: a tale of dreams and woe, this new production will blend elements of Taoism with theater of the Absurd as the three titular characters remain atop three heaps of discarded personal junk, seated high above their dilapidated world where they emotionally decay before the audience's eyes. Three Sisters: a tale of dreams and woe explores the longing, despair, and fantasy in Anton Chekhov's famous Drama: the account of a trio of sisters who dream of the wondrous city of Moscow so they can escape their dreadful, lonesome lives. This absurdly humorous adaptation transforms Chekhov's play into a dark, otherworldly fairytale where each of the five characters is based on a natural element of Taoism (Metal, Fire, Wood, Earth, Water), each representing only one part of what should be a balanced whole. In this production, each character will also have unique, highly physical and stylized movements and speech patterns, carrying through the characters' inability to communicate with one another. the production will feature an original score by Amanda Tabor based on and inspired by the music referred to in Chekhov's original play (such as Tchaikovsky's opera Eugene Onegin).
