Chekhov Machine: Three Sisters

The Chekhov Machine is a collective that comprises of artists from various disciplines who have committed themselves to the play Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov. The collective creates new events and performances depending on the available space, time and possibilities. Each performance is a poetic improvisation on space and time – a site-specific live installation that deals with themes such as anxiety, ambivalence, sadness, longing, imprisonment and the feelings of being an outsider.

I have been a member of the group since January 2015. I plan visuality for our performances, and I also perform as a live set designer during our shows. Next performances are at Mad House Helsinki, October 1st, 2nd and 3rd 2015 at 7pm. Welcome! More info: Pia Männikkö: Chekhov Machine: Three Sisters
