Lansburgh Theatre 
Man in a Case
Adapted and Directed by Annie-B Parson & Paul Lazar / The Big Dance Theater
Adapted from Two Stories by Anton Chekov
Featuring Mikhail Baryshnikov
December 5-22

In Chekhov's brilliant tale of humor and despair, a pair of hunters talk late into the night sharing stories: one of an anti-social man and his involvement with an aggressively extroverted woman. The second, a tale of moral ambiguity in which the protagonist forgoes his love for a married woman. Drawing from surveillance footage, folk dance, and instructional hunting videos, 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 to this irresistible evening of live performance and mixed media.
