Creative Conversation: Christiane Jatahy
Co-presented by BAM and Mark Morris Dance Group In conjunction with What if they went to Moscow?
Director Christiane Jatahy leads a participatory, small-group discussion to unpack her adaptation of Chekhov in What if they went to Moscow?. Experienced across stage and screen, Jatahy’s work experiments with the boundaries of form, developing new ways to engage audiences’ imaginations. In this workshop, participants think together about the creation of work that is told simultaneously through film and theater but lives fully in the audience’s experience of both. How can each medium stand alone, while also complementing the other? How does space and viewpoint impact the audience experience? What possibilities exist in storytelling when the viewer is an active participant in interpretation?
