Running Time: TBD

With every great artistic movement comes a boiling of thought and discussion, that bursts into action.  In 1879 a 19-year-old Anton Chekhov first met Isaac Levitan, the painter of “landscapes of mood,” and their complex emotional artistry proceeded to grow in tandem. Join Artistic Director, Gavin Reub, as he curates and directs an evening focusing on the relationships that spurred action in many great artists of the 19th and 20th Century.  Roger Fry and Virginia Woolf, Aaron Douglas and W.E.B. Du Bois, Jackson Pollock and Frank O’Hara, all make appearances in an evening of multi-disciplinary pairings.

As part of The Great Soul of Russia series

SeagullThe Seagull Project was formed out of a passion for the great works of Anton Chekhov. Having met and collaborated on Seattle Shakespeare Company's wildly successful Threepenny Opera  in 2011, the founding producers immediately sought a new collaboration; one which allowed the actors to take the time needed to create an ensemble and honor the work of Chekhov with bravery, honesty, simplicity, and elegance. In January of 2013, they opened The Seagull in ACT's Falls Theatre, garnering both audience and critical acclaim. In April of 2014, The Seagull Project had the great distinction of becoming the first American ensemble in history to perform at the Ilkhom Theatre in Tashkent, Uzbekistan - a Seattle sister city. Upon their return, they produced Chekhov's Three Sisters in January of 2015. Learn more about The Seagull Project at .
