Clinical neuroscientist Jonathan Cole and acclaimed theatre artist Andrew Dawson collaborate in the first ever on-stage production of Chekhov’s autobiographical masterpiece Sakhalin Island. Funded by the Wellcome Trust, the physical performance piece documents Chekhov’s pilgrimage to Russia’s Far East, a journey he undertook for both artistic and scientific reasons.
