PERFORMANCE: THREE SISTERS Duration: 150 minutes with a break Croatian National Theater in Zagreb AP Chekhov: Three Sisters Author's project by Bobo Jelčić
In Bobo Jelčić's authorial project, Chekhov's famous play Three Sisters becomes the starting point from which the directorial and acting research starts, not only the fate of dramatic heroes but all of us, looking for answers to numerous questions posed in the initial text. This author's project re-examines and erases the boundaries of theatrical art, opens hitherto closed processes within the theater house, questions how characters and motifs from Chekhov's time relate to this ours and how they converse with the audience. This process therefore also takes real steps towards erasing the given theatrical frameworks, opening up to the audience and questioning content that is inherently understandable to the theater. After meeting with the audience, the process of working on the play continued taking into account the questions and answers that emerged at the open rehearsals. With his specific understanding of theater as a place of communication between writers, directors, actors and spectators, Bobo Jelčić creates new and exciting theatrical forms that presuppose readiness for unexpected challenges of all possible provenances. Chekhov and his famous text are taken as a mirror of all of us, which is multiplied by the actions of actors and spectators, creating a layered form of mutual relations that always correspond to the present moment.
