Baryshnikov Arts Center presents the U.S. Premiere of celebrated contemporary Russian playwright Ivan Viripaev’s ILLUSIONS, translated and directed by American theater artist Cazimir Liske, a Moscow Art Theatre School graduate. Through intertwining stories of two married couples, ILLUSIONS playfully unravels paradoxes of passion and death, loyalty and betrayal, truth and fiction, in a darkly comedic examination of true love.

- Written by Ivan Viripaev
- Translated and Directed by Cazimir Liske
- Featuring Anthony Gaskins, Stephanie Hayes, Annie Purcell, and Mickey Solis

This production of ILLUSIONS was developed in residence at BAC.
