A Selfie with Anton Chekhov

By Dominique de Rivaz

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904), a Russian doctor and writer, is the world’s most performed playwright after Shakespeare. He was 44 years old when, in July 1904, with his last breath, he uttered in German “Ich sterbe (I am dying)”. From Moscow to Badenweiler in southern Germany, “A Selfie with Anton Chekhov“ questions these final words and puts the author’s brief, selfless and altruistic existence into perspective with our own finiteness.
