Description

_Anton’s Uncles _is a fresh, funny, and physical look at Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya. In this original work, only the men remain, wrestling with their desires and pressed to examine a life unlived.   _ Anton’s Uncles _is the latest work from Theatre Movement Bazaar (TMB) co-founders, Tina Kronis and Richard Alger. Theatre Movement Bazaar continues its unique remixing of literary classics with this new deconstruction of Anton Chekhov’s __Uncle Vanya. __The text is a distillation of the original with new material added. The movement score emphasizes the unspoken, unseen and unexpressed for a fresh and physical impression of Chekhov’s classic.

_Anton’s Uncles _was honored to be one of three productions invited to the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival national event in Washington, D.C. in April, 2010. This new work from TMB co-founders Tina Kronis and Richard Alger and was originally produced by Los Angeles City College Theatre Academy. This special engagement of _Anton’s Uncles _is part of a continuing celebration of the 150th anniversary of Anton Chekhov’s birth.
