tg STAN The Cherry Orchard


STAN's Cherry Orchard is incredibly witty - not side - splitting but gentle chuckles at regular intervals. At the same time it is sad - not tear - jerking, but heartache.-De Volkskrant

In this airy Cherry Orchard human tragedies are hidden behind nonchalance as the characters jauntily dance their way towards their destruction.-Het Parool


The Cherry Orchard is Anton Chekhov’s last play, and certainly the most enigmatic of his works. The play tells the fall of the aristocracy and the rise of capitalism: when the family estate is due for auction, should they try to keep the cherry orchard, home to many a childhood memory, or surrender it to real estate developers so they can pay off their debts? Yet as bleak as the family’s fortunes seem, Chekhov originally intended this play to be as much a comedy ‘a farce, even’ as it is a social commentary.

For their Taiwanese debut, the Belgian theater collective STAN reinterprets this classic piece for our modern day and age. Equal parts tragedy and comedy, their production highlights the inevitability of shifting values as times change.

Artistic and Creative Team

STAN, an acronym for Stop Thinking About Names, is a theatre collective consisting of Jolente De Keersmaeker, Damiaan De Schrijver and Frank Vercruyssen. The company operates on the democratic principle that everyone participates in decisions about everything, from text selection, set and lighting to costumes and posters. STAN puts the performer at center stage and firmly believes in the principle of the sovereign actor, i.e. that the actor is both player and maker.

STAN nurtures a firm belief in the ‘living’ power of theatre: the performance is not a reproduction of something that is learned, but something that is created anew every night together with the audience. So a STAN performance is not a finished product, but rather an invitation to a dialogue.
