Masha Serghyeevna (2009)

A re-working of Anton Chekhov’s ‘Three Sisters’ into a solo performance based around the middle sister, Masha Serghyeevna

I walk on stage and announce that another world is possible.
I walk on stage and fall in love.
This performance is about longing, dancing, affairs, lost and unsent letters, Vershinin, soldiers, war, Moscow, Moscow, Moscow…
‘My dear sisters I have something to confess to you… I am in love, in love’ says Masha

This performance explores the boundaries between desire and revolution.

Masha Serghyeevna was developed at the Bluecoat in Liverpool in Nov 2009.
The performance was supported by Arts Council England.
