The Hummm
A wild and riotous deconstruction of Chekhov's 'Three Sisters'
Featuring Ali Stoner, Sarah Paton, Janice Amaya, Katherine Wright 
Directed by Kai Chieh Tu 
Music by Fedor Sokolov 
Lighting Design by Jamie Roderick 
 
A wild and riotous deconstruction of Chekhov's classic play, Three Sisters, performed with just four actors. Created using the “etude” style of devising inspired by their work abroad at The Moscow Art Theater while studying at the A.R.T. Institute, the creative team behind The Hummm [Kai Chieh Tu (Dramaturg '16), Ali Stoner (Actor '16), Janice Amaya (Actor '16), Katherine Wright (Actor '16), Sarah Paton (Actor '16)] explores themes of success, sisterhood, and loneliness both in the world of the play and present day. The production transports the audience to a surreal world in which the classically bottled-up passions of Chekhov’s characters are released. Part classic, part fever dream - The Hummm is an exciting mix of dance, clowning, and improv, all tied together by a vibrant soundtrack and performed live by our composer, DJ Fedor Sokolov.
