"Seagulls" is Volcano’s acclaimed Radical Classic production, based on Chekhov’s The Seagull.  This production brings the excitement of Volcano’s site-responsive theatre back into the auditorium with a design installation by young performance designer Milla Clarke and lighting designer Ben Stimpson.  The production has Chekhov’s text interwoven with sections of fast moving improvisation and incorporates surprising technical elements.  It is an impossibly sad, unreasonably funny and ludicrously inventive version of a Russian classic.

Production 演出與製作團隊

Volcano is an artist-led, outward-focused organization that explores ideas and social relations through performance. Volcano embraces the immediacy, surprise, and risk at the heart of live performance, viewing its audiences as active participants. The company occupies a disused industrial city-centre building where it creates original work and hosts visiting arts.
Volcano has the ability to move quickly and imaginatively to make things happen, and has a track-record in inspiring and engaging others, working in partnership and setting big ideas in motion. We have been creating and touring high-impact professional theatre productions all over the world for over 27 years.
