Rogue Machine is pleased to be part of a special performance of “The Orchard /an auction/,” a groundbreaking new piece of hybrid theater (live in person and live virtual online), to benefit Ukraine. For this #StandWith Ukraine event, a portion of ticket sales as well as collected donations will benefit Arlekin’s Artists4Ukraine’s partnership with Campfire Project and IsraAID, as well as Nova Ukraine, a national organization providing comprehensive humanitarian aid in Ukraine.
Created by Arlekin Players, an award-winning, artist-driven theater company helmed by Ukrainian-born artistic director Igor Golyak and known for its inventive productions and internationally acclaimed virtual theater projects, “The Orchard” features Jessica Hecht and Mikhail Baryshnikov and was most recently seen for an Off-Broadway run in New York. This is an adaptation of “The Cherry Orchard” by Anton Chekhov as translated by Carol Rocamora. “The Orchard /an auction/” is a virtual version – a unique online experience, available worldwide. Audiences from around the globe are invited to gather in real time for the auctioning of our cherry orchard, and to travel with the characters of the live Orchard performance through an interactive journey with this family in crisis as they face the loss of their home, their land and the world as they know it.
Virtual experiences are available worldwide for six shows only, Nov. 9- Nov. 13. The live, in-person performances are simultaneously taking place on the Robert J Orchard Stage, Paramount Center, ArtsEmerson in Boston.
