Mikhail Baryshnikov along with a daring ensemble tells two of Chekhov’s brilliant anti-love stories with a myriad of mixed media and movement. A pair of hunters talk late into the night sharing stories; one of a stiff encased man, whose memories flash on television screens and Polaroids, and his involvement with an aggressively extroverted woman. The second, a tale of moral ambiguity in which the protagonist forgoes his love for a married woman is portrayed in a haunting movement piece projected from stage to screen.
