About this show

The Hummm explores the soundscape of Chekhov's Three Sisters and selected short stories. Based on the belief that vibration carries meaning, the piece uses sound as the driving force to unpack the subtlety and musicality of Chekhov's most lonely women.

Featuring four actresses, the show is set in a post-apocalyptic future where all the military men have died and only the women remain. Humming, whining, whispering, clamoring — this show wraps the audience in a 'Chekhovian polyphony,' where the chords are made of ecstasy, anguish, and perpetual disillusion. Incorporating a wide range of music and media, featuring a live DJ, and intensified by stylistic choreography, The Hummm creates an unprecedented aural and visual experience of the Three Sisters.
