"Man in a Case", featuring Mikhail Baryshnikov

Adapted and Directed by Annie-B Parson & Paul Lazar / Big Dance Theater

Adapted from Two Stories by Anton Chekhov

Featuring Mikhail Baryshnikov

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.

Runtime: about 1 hour 15 minutes with no intermission.

Lansburgh Theatre, 450 7th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20004
