Event description

Description

The Second Year Acting Company will investigate and interrogate Anton Chekhov, presenting a season of his short stories at the Arts Academy as part of the Ballarat Writers Festival.

Canonised and celebrated as a playwright, Chekhov is a pivotal figure who transformed contemporary theatre practice through his landmark plays. Perhaps lesser known as a prolific short story writer, Chekhov is celebrated as having changed the genre itself with his spare, impressionistic depictions of Russian life and the human condition.

Under the watchful guidance of Arts Academy acting lecturer Ross Hall, the Second Year Acting Company will delve into the evocative and transcendent short stories of Chekhov, to present a poetic performative mosaic of his writing.

The studio season at the Arts Academy allows audiences to experience lesser-known and surprising performance work, and to witness our Arts Academy training in progress.

The season is presented in conjunction with the Ballarat Writers Festival 2017 at the Arts Academy.
