The Seagull Hyperdrama

The Seagull Hyperdrama

By Charles Deemer

What are the characters in Chekhov’s play The Seagull doing when they are “off stage”? This is the question addressed by hyperdrama, a recent environmental theater form that explodes conventional drama into a branching narrative in which all characters are in the performance space at all times. Into this beehive of simultaneous action, the audience is dropped like invisible voyeurs who may wander through the play as they like.
