About love(in) Chekhov

Rawmatterial invites actors and directors for an exploration of Chekhov’s short stories through the method of the etude led by performer and directorMaria Gaitanidi. Participants will work from the author’s material via monologues and scenes, towards the discovery of their actor’s nature, their creativity and their artistic independence.

The work is open to all regardless of age and experience and requires commitment, an open mind and a desire to experiment.
