Anton's Uncles is an adaptation of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. This new work is a deconstruction of the original where only the men remain from the cast of nine characters. The text is a distillation of the original with new material added. The movement score emphasizes the unspoken, unseen, and unexpressed for a fresh, physical, and funny impression of Chekhov's classic.
