Dance Faculty Member Performs with Baryshnikov in Chekhov Adaptation
'Man in a Case' on stage through March 24 at the Hartford Stage in Connecticut
February 26, 2013
Tymberly Canale, adjunct associate professor of Dance History at the University of the Arts, performs alongside legendary dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov in "Man in a Case." Adapted from two stories by Russian dramatist Anton Chekhov, the experimental, ensemble theater piece runs through March 24 at the Hartford Stage in Hartford, Conn.
Canale plays the role of Barbara in this world premiere adaptation of Chekhov's "Man in a Case" and "About Love." Though seemingly different, both are tales of fear trumping the pursuit of life's most promising possibilities.
"Man in a Case" showcases the signature style of the Bessie and Obie Award-winning Big Dance Theater, whose co-founders/directors Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar are best known for fusing theater, movement, music and video.
