New York City
In Chekhov’s brilliant tale of humor and despair, a pair of hunters talk late into the night sharing stories: one of an anti-social man 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. Drawing from surveillance footage, folk dance, and instructional hunting videos, Man in a Case creates a bridge between our time and that of these 19th-century anti-love stories. Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar, the team behind the internationally acclaimed Big Dance Theater, bring their signature style to this irresistible evening of live performance and mixed media.
