Chekhov Celebration: Three Sisters
Three Sisters poignantly conveys the lives, struggles, loves, and secret desires of sisters Masha, Olga, and Irina and their somewhat ineffectual brother Andrei. Set in a mythological provincial town in late 19th century Russia, we see their lives unfold before our eyes. Translated by Paul Schmidt and directed by Harriet Power.
Founded in 2011 by former Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre dancer Alan Obuzor, Texture is comprised of classically-trained professional ballet dancers who have danced and trained at some of America's top ballet companies and schools.
