CHEKHOV Fast & Furious


© Superamas
»If you come to think of it, I am, probably, very, very unhappy.« Bitterness, boredom and self-pity define the characters in Chekhov’s late 19th-century play Uncle Vanya. Although his characters are stuck in a place they don’t want to be, they don’t break out or take a risk. Anyone who starts to make waves calms down again – and in the end, everything stays the same.
When the rebellious Franco-Austrian performance collective Superamas tackles this comedy, the result is an urgent plea for vitality, courage and spectacle. In a process that spans several months, Superamas join forces with a group of energetic, bold young people from France, Iceland and Austria to translate the themes of the “old” theatre into our time. It remains to be seen how much original Chekhov is actually left in the piece. This special form of artistic collaboration establishes the theatre as a place for interacting and experimenting.
