Song Of The Seagull at The Menier Gallery
Ruby in the Dust presents Song Of The Seagull, adapted and directed by Linnie Reedman from The Seagull by Anton Chekhov, original music by Joe Evans, at The Menier Gallery, Southwark, from 15 Mar 2012 - 31 Mar 2012.
Young Anton Pavlovich Chekhov, surrounded by Bohemian artists, writers and musicians, is lured away from the medical profession and begins to take his writing seriously. But his involvement with a young gypsy singer, and his relationship with landscape artist Isaac Levitan lead to a life-changing painting excursion to the Volga. Tragedy and disillusion inevitably follow the young, impetuous passion.
It will play out around the art installation in the gallery, an event titled Water From The Moon.
