"WHEN A MAN STARTS PHILOSOPHIZING THAT'S WHAT'S TERMED PHILOSOPHISTICS OR JUST PLAIN SOPHISTICS,
BUT WHEN A WOMAN OR A COUPLE OF WOMEN START DOING IT THEN IT'S JUST A CASE OF THEM TALKING THROUGH THEIR HATS"
THE HUMMM is a wild and riotous deconstruction of Chekhov's Three Sisters, performed with just four actors. Created using the “etude” style of devising inspired by their work at The Moscow Art Theater, the creative team behind The Hummm 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.
