Talking about Three Sisters

Nelson Chia/Nine Years Theatre (Singapore)

In the style of Nine Year Theatre’s (NYT) signature Drink and Talk sessions – a causal dialogue with the audience over drinks – Artistic Director Nelson Chia will share about NYT’s long working relationship with the SITI Company of New York. In particular, Chia will discuss how the two companies met, their training and creative processes, and their decision to embark on a work together, to adapt Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters.

Audiences will get an insight into the conception of Three Sisters – to be presented at SIFA 2020 – and what embarking on a collaboration crossing language, cultures, geographical space and generations mean to both companies.
