Members are invited to a special dinner, talk and performance of Donka: A Letter to Chekhov, part of BAM’s 30th Next Wave Festival.
Featuring a spectacular melding of acrobatics, juggling, clowning and music, internationally renowned circus artist Daniele Finzi Pasca (creator and director of Corteo, Cirque du Soleil; Icaro, Compagnia Finzi Pasca) delivers an imagistic love letter to Anton Chekhov.
A visually and physically stunning meditation on the legendary dramatist's writings and life, Donka: A Letter to Chekhov gives shape to his inner world: a place where dreams and reality converge. As his beloved characters parade through a fantastical interpretation of the Russia he called home, haunting strains of accordions mingle with birdsong while shadow, color and feats of technical mastery flood the stage in this dreamlike universe.
A Philanthropy New York Special Event hosted by Renova USA.
