DISCOmmoveo: Three Sisters

DISCOmmoveo makes a text out of context.

It is a performance playground, a dance floor, a choreographic game, a frame, an environment, a performance. You are invited to join us in a dance, a choreography, an encounter, in whatever role you want in a play you may have heard of: the Three Sisters. Yes, by Chekhov.

To begin with, we suggest that you play the role of spectator, observer, and that in this role you allow yourself to be invited by the play into other roles, say, actor, playwright, dancer, technician, choreographer, or something else.

We have the initial theme of the play (The Three Sisters), but where the path takes us is up to us, as we create the path as we go along. Together. We will play with the Three Sisters using touch, dress and shape. Of course, you can play in this way too, or if you wish by other means.

Let us know.

The first round of the play was performed in Maribor, Slovenia at Vetrinjski dvor, 21st January 2022.
