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
