Invisible Tears is inspired by the works of Anton Chekhov, who laughed at the absurdities of human nature. Even at moments of great tension, Chekhov’s good humour creeps in. “I have a craving for life”, he once admitted. He adored buffoonery, there was nothing of a puritan in him. This particular production is based on the specific theatrical method formulated by the renowned Michael Chekhov, Anton’s nephew, who believed in the power of imagination, intuition and fantasy.
