Theater Arts Program presents ‘like sisters,’ April 22-27

Posted by Melissa Lynch | Posted on Apr 20, 2014

Tags:

  • April 22 – April 26 at 7:30 p.m.; April 27 at 3 p.m.
  • Michelson Theatre, Little Center
  • $5; free with College I.D.

Based on the works of Anton Chekhov
Directed by Raymond Munro

“like sisters” is the product of a yearlong collaboration between Professor Ray Munro and 15 Clark University students. The focus of this LEEP seminar was to create a new work, drawing from a wide range of sources including novels, plays, journal articles, and YouTube videos. Rooted in Anton Chekhov’s “Three Sisters,” “like sisters” looks with a critical eye at how we consume technology, perceive nature without an interior, and human beings without a spirit.

“like sisters” is a performance collage. It is structured by two poles; one is represented by the three sisters from the Prozorova family in the fading of Tsarist Russia. The other involves three young women sharing residential life at Clark University in 2014 who through the sharing of their suite, clothes, and boyfriends, find that they become like sisters. Bridging the two poles the piece moves through the 20st century in a non-linear way touching upon the themes of propaganda, public relations, and mind control.

For more information about the event, call our Estabrook office at 508-793-7356. Like ClarkArts on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
