About this show

Anton Chekhov's The Seagull is adapted and directed by Giancarlo Nanni of Teatro Vascello from Rome, Italy. The theater's method, called "scrittura scenica" (scenic writing), goes beyond the written text to discover other meanings through movement, lighting, and sound together with the actor's voice and rhythm. Il Gabbiano is a dreamy voyage with colored lights and abstract movement that takes literally Constantine's admonition in the play that the theater must represent life "not how it is, not even as it should be, but in the way it appears in dreams." Performed in Italian, with projected English translation.
