The Treatment
in collaboration with
Theatre Movement Bazaar
February 25 - March 25, 2012

A World Premiere

The Treatment, an adaptation of Chekhov’s story, Ward 6

conceived by Kronis & Alger, text by Richard Alger

directed and choreographed by Tina Kronis

Who draws the line between sanity and insanity? In this new work of visceral, movement-based storytelling, a complacent doctor's world view is upended when he befriends a philosophizing madman in a remote and neglected mental hospital. Chekhov’s investigation of people in positions of power and those they hold captive ignites with intense physicality fused with ironic humor, dance and song. 

GO! "The late Martha Graham liked to say that the body does not lie, that movement does not lie. With writer-partner Richard Alger, director-choreographer Tina Kronis and her Theatre Movement Bazaar company have developed Graham’s ethos into a strikingly original and expressive form of physical theater whose thrilling lyricism and cool élan have powered an impressive cycle of playfully probing adaptations of Chekhov.The pair’s latest entry in the series does not disappoint." -LA Weekly
CRITIC'S PICK "Thankfully, there's plenty of sly wit and food for thought in this wacky but incisive view of a cuckoo's nest, and Chekhov's trenchant social commentary still rings true." -Back Stage
