"Christiane Jatahy is the new voice of Brazilian theater...with a strong cinematic impact. A Must see!" —Le Libre, Belgium
Brazilian director Christiane Jatahy brilliantly merges live performance and filmmaking in what she describes as a "mirror game between theater and cinema."
Her wildly acclaimed take on Anton Chekov's Three Sisters imagines the siblings hosting a house party in modern day Brazil--and the piece is seen by two audiences simultaneously, with each group experiencing it twice (in two very different ways.)
One audience is in the theater, which is transformed into a sound-stage occupied by the perfomrers and three hand-held camera operators (one for each sister). At the same time, the other audience watches a beautifully edited live feed in an adjacent screening space, where they witness the director's perspective. After a break, the two audiences trade places, and realize that each version is a very different expereince, as the camera captures different moments, perspectives and facial expressions, giving the work a distinctly different tone and meaning.
Critics around the world have called it a "masterpiece" and "a new dramaturgical language."
This is the second piece in a trilogy --Jatahy won rave reviews when REDCAT hosted the first, her version of Miss Julie (Julia), and her unique response to Macbeth (The Walking Forest).
