What I’m finding is that what we’re making is not one play after the next, but that the plays are an expression of ways that we’ve learned to be together, radical new ways of being humans. And what the theatre can do is propose alternate ways of peeling back the barriers, of melting away the assumptions and the constrictions that this particular social moment puts on us.– Anne Bogart

“A brilliant new dance-theater piece.”– NJArts
An interdisciplinary production based on the works of Charles Mee, combining the forces of Elizabeth Streb and her company, STREB EXTREME ACTION with world-renowned theater director, Anne Bogart and SITI Company. FALLING & LOVING premiered last fall at Peak Performances at Montclair University. That production was breathtakingly captured with 12 cameras of varying sizes and purposes and will be available to the public via the ALL ARTS Broadcast Channel and Digital Platform. A radical spectacle featuring a 52-bucket Guck Machine suspended overhead while performers explore the many possible expressions of love through action, FALLING & LOVING is pure joy.
The Drama Centre Theatre, Singapore
SITI Company and Nine Years Theatre create a multi-lingual retelling of Chekov’s Three Sisters—the story of Olga, Masha, and Irina, sisters who fritter away their lives in a provincial town while dreaming about returning to the cosmopolitan city where they grew up. In this brand new, international collaboration, the absurdity, courage and tenderness of the human condition will be illuminated through multiple cultural lenses and powerful physicality by two award-winning theatre ensembles.
