WaxFactory presents a work-in-progress showing of PUT YOURSELF TOGETHER!, a modern, media-enhanced riff on Anton Chekhov’s classic The Seagull. This sixth installment of an ongoing, multi-year series of open studio presentations invites you to take a peek behind the process of shaping the characters for what eventually might just become the weirdest production of The Seagull you have ever seen. The presentation, conceived and directed by WaxFactory’s artistic co-director Ivan Talijancic, stars longtime collaborators Erika Latta, Gillian Chadsey, Melody Bates, Kestrel Leah, and Todd Peters, along with Ryan Gingery, Kamila Slawinski, and Joanna Zamojda who mark their debut with WaxFactory. The show features lighting design is by Solomon Weisbard, sound by Yiannis Christofides, video by Victor Morales, and patisserie by Kristin Worrall.
The one-night performance will take place as part of the Atrium 360° series at the David Rubenstein Atrium at the Lincoln Center. The show is free and open to the public; seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
About the Company: WaxFactory
WaxFactory, co-founded and led by Artistic Directors Ivan Talijancic and Erika Latta, in 1998, is a New York based multidisciplinary performance group dedicated to exploring a multiplicity of theatrical visions. Its founding members have developed and continue to nurture a hybrid approach, based on unconventional narrative styles, original dramaturgy, visual and physical rigor, technological experimentation, and site-specific work; and are committed to ensemble creations and international collaborations. Since its formation, WaxFactory has been one of the most internationally active multidisciplinary groups to emerge from the New York downtown scene, creating new performance, installation, film and video works featuring a highly innovative blend of physical performance, audio-visual, architectural and fashion design, and an integrated use of new media and technology. Since its inception, the company has been steadfast in its commitment to creating works that bring together artists from the company’s core group in New York and abroad. Waxfactory.nyc
