THE SEAGULL - ANTON CHECKOV (SPECULATIVE)
DIRECTOR James Dacre Venue: The Almedia
Referencing the Almeida's previous life as an operating theatre we explored themes of medication in The Seagull, looking at the notion that the audience are witnessing an operation ,conducted by Chekhov, in which he is
dissecting the troubled lives of the nine central characters. We created a cold hospital inspired pallet of white tiles and grey plaster and used live projection of a petri dish full of water as an metaphore for the lake near witch the action takes place.
