Immerse yourself in the interactive fabric of WaxFactory’s dreamlike, video-enhanced riff on Anton Chekhov's The Seagull. Presented at venues across New York as a string of hashtag-marked vignettes, PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER! is a 21st-century exploration of the deepest, murkiest id of Chekhov’s play about a particularly nasty bunch of people drowning in the quicksand of unrequited love. Filtered through present-day optics of media-saturated, self-centered, attention-span-deprived contemporary culture, even audiences unfamiliar with the Chekhovian characters will recognize their archetypal traits. Those who know The Seagull by heart will enjoy experiencing the timeless original from a wholly new vantage point. Tonight’s performance is part of a multiyear development process begun in 2014 that will culminate in a complete, evening-length theatrical production.
