Nous reviendrons au printemps (current)

An interdisciplinary piece delving into Chekhov’s iconic The Cherry Orchard through theater, movement, music, and audience immersion.

Audiences are invited to join the family in welcoming home their beloved matriarch. As the revelries turn sour, and the imminent loss of the estate looms near, the festivities are cut short and the world of the play cracks open, luring the audience in the secrets hidden in the estate's corners and into the subconscious world of Chekhov’s characters.

Nous reviendrons au printemps is an opportunity to see past the seemingly flawless beauty of the cherry blossoms, dig into the soil, and expose what is poisoning the orchard at its roots. Preserving the essence of the themes that Chekhov raised at a moment of colossal change, it transports the narrative to the 21st century European context by asking: Who can call this Cherry Orchard home?

Currently looking for bookings starting in 2024.
