Christiane Jatahy: What if they went to Moscow?

"Christiane Jatahy is the new voice of Brazilian theater...with a strong cinematic impact. A Must see!" Le Libre, Belgium

WHAT IF THEY WENT TO MOSCOW? from Christiane Jatahy on Vimeo.

Brazilian director Christiane Jatahy brilliantly merges live performance and filmmaking in what she describes as a "mirror game between theater and cinema." Her wildly acclaimed take on Anton Chekov's Three Sisters imagines the siblings hosting a house party in modern day Brazil--and the piece is seen by two audiences simultaneously, with each group experiencing it twice (in two very different ways.) 

One audience is in the theater, which is transformed into a sound-stage occupied by the perfomrers and three hand-held camera operators (one for each sister). At the same time, the other audience watches a beautifully edited live feed in an adjacent screening space, where they witness the director's perspective. After a break, the two audiences trade places, and realize that each version is a very different expereince, as the camera captures different moments, perspectives and facial expressions, giving the work a distinctly different tone and meaning. 

Critics around the world have called it a "masterpiece" and "a new dramaturgical language." 

This is the second piece in a trilogy --Jatahy won rave reviews when REDCAT hosted the first, her version of Miss Julie (Julia), and her unique response to Macbeth (The Walking Forest).

NOTE: THE AUDIENCES EXPERIENCES TWO DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THIS REMARKABLE 90-MINUTE WORK, SEPARATED BY A 45-MINUTE BREAK.
