Man In A Case

The Broad Stage

Santa Monica, CA 90401

7:30pm

Adapted from two Anton Chekhov short stories, Man In A Case is a pair of haunting love stories - one of an officious, anti-social man and his involvement with an extroverted woman. The second, a tale of moral ambiguity in which the protagonist forgoes his love for a married woman. Though seemingly different, both are tales of fear trumping the pursuit of life's most promising possibilities. Drawing from material as varied as surveillance footage, folk dance, instructional hunting videos, and interviews with the cast, Man In A Case creates a bridge between our time and that of these 19th-century, anti-love stories. Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar, the team behind the internationally acclaimed Big Dance Theater, bring their signature style - fusing theater, dance, music and video - to this newly distinctive work featuring Mikhail Baryshnikov.
