CHEKHOV MACHINE is a series of performances unlike you’ve never seen before. It is the master playwright Anton Chekhov’s “Three Sisters” transformed into a happening, mixing tradition with contemporary theatre and dance. CHEKOV MACHINE is taking everything that is good in the tradition that is the base of all theatre today and shaking it up. What has become tired in classical renditions of these plays, we bring it back to life. We are going back to the roots of the theatre, and mixing it up with dance, with improvisation and with an energy that will breathe new life into this tradition. Anton Chekov’s plays and their themes are timeless and multi-layered. Each of us will learn the entire play by heart and make an unforgettable performance out of it that will take over the world.
The Three Sisters project contains of an open group of artist from the fields of theater, photography, performance art, dance and visual arts that have met each other since January 2015 once a month for tree to five days each time. The group has been improvising inspired from the themes in the play Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov.
