About the Show Seagull (Thinking of you) is a new live performance that
works with, against, and beneath Chekhov’s The Seagull.
Director Tina Satter’s unique contemporary voice takes on
the beauty and darkness of Chekhov’s play in a beautiful
act of theatrical rethinking. Satter draws from Chekhov’s
letters, varying Seagull translations, quasi-biographical
facts from early productions of the play in Russia, and
Chekhov’s perverse sense of comedy to consider anew
what makes the human heart beat and why we ever try to
say something out loud. With her Half Straddle collaborators, Satter deconstructs the texts to create an unexpected
new work of theater that is ultimately about making
something with people you could love: just like Chekhov
wanted, with a Russian folk metal-influenced score.
“Full to the brim with
killer talent.” -Time Out New York
