The Seagull

The Seagull by Anton Tchekhov

Masterfully mixing live and video art, Cyril Teste takes on Chekhov’s The Seagull. By filming his actor’s faces as closely as possible, chiselling silhouettes through a play of light and shadow, and ever-so-slightly shifting the focus towards the intimate, he sketches a cinematic saga – a fatal circle dance that swallows up people and souls. An uncompromising theatrical mise en abyme.
