In June 2017, Theatre Movement Bazaar was invited to take our production of Track 3 for a short tour in Russia. We performed at the Chekhov International Theatre Festival in Moscow, and Theatre Boff in St. Petersburg. To perform our adaptation of Chekov’s Three Sisters in his homeland was an incredible experience. (scroll down to see a few photos of the trip!)
From our start at Bootleg Theater, to South Coast Rep, to Edinburgh Fringe, to Greenwich Theatre in London and back to Los Angeles for RADAR LA, Track 3 was loved. Here’s a round up of all of our reviews:
“Theatre Movement Bazaar’s "Track 3,” the L.A. troupe’s vaudevillian take on Chekhov’s "Three Sisters,“ thrived in this atmosphere, demonstrating to all lucky enough to catch this sprightly and sensitive riff at Los Angeles Theatre Center that its ensemble members are as disciplined and fearlessly original as any of the casts visiting from abroad.” – Los Angeles Times
“The performances are outstanding…This is a company worth both watching and supporting as its reputation spreads beyond Southern California.” – Huffington Post
“Mad, rad and dangerous to miss. Track 3 is a glorious treat that is sure to bring a smile to the face.” – Broadway Baby
“MUST SEE!” – The Stage.co.uk
“There’s undeniable, almost indescribable charm to director-choreographer Tina Kronis’ staging, filled with gorgeous songs and chorales performed by the superb company, which also has actors snapping their heads in unison to recorded piano ragtime accompaniment.” – LA Weekly
Love our Three Sisters!
Theatre Movement Bazaar’s Track 3
A contemporary adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters
January 17 – February 10
Theatre Movement Bazaar, creators of last year’s Anton’s Uncles and The Treatment, investigate Chekhov’s famous play, Three Sisters. In this new work, Track 3, the characters are stranded, waiting and wanting something outside of themselves to give them happiness. They are on the modern hero’s journey, not to Moscow, as they hoped, but a journey within. Movement, dance, song and humor derail the play from its Victorian origins and set the itinerary for a twenty-first century existential extravaganza.
Theatre Movement Bazaar is a company dedicated to creating original performance works. Led by principal artists Kronis + Alger, TMB’s award-winning productions heighten physicality and remix theatre forms to create provocative story telling.
