An impressionistic theatre/dance adaptation of THE THREE SISTERS where only the three Prozorov sisters remain bearing the existential burden of the entire cast. The physical language score is constructed from decontextualized Victorian codes and manners. Content and movement merge into a stylized performance best described as abstract music hall.

The production was originally produced by the Sacred Fools Theater and premiered on their stage.

Director/writer: Tina Kronis
Assistant director: Richard Alger

Performers: Jenifer Hamel, Michelle Philippe, Jessie Thompson
