I SHOULD HAVE A PARTY FOR ALL THE THOUGHTS I DIDN'T SAY is an imagistic and evocative love letter to Anton Chekhov, told through physically driven performance, ancient mourning songs, a lively Balkan band, and scenes reinterpreted in eastern European gibbiersh. I Should Have a Party is Chekhov, but as if it was a musical composition, made of essences and rhythms.
Now to be performed in the glamorous and historic Palm Court Ballroom in Downtown LA’s Alexandria Hotel on March 10th, the piece transforms itself from theatre performance to a unique theatrical event of epic proportions. One feels as though one is the witness of a painting that moves, performing on the senses like a welcomed hallucination.
The performance is a multifaceted theatrical event that will take place for one night only on March 10, 2013 at the historic Alexandria Hotel.
Combining song, dance, live Baltic music, and scenes inspired by the work of Russian playwright, Anton Chekov this event will surely peek the curiosity of and intrigue any KPCC listener, art enthusiast, and culture seeker. The architecture and historical glamour of the Alexandria Hotel will provide the perfect setting for this unique night out.
