STREETCAR [I DON'T WANT REALISM]
from TENNESSEE WILLIAMS
FARKAS HALL | Cambridge, MA | 2018
STREETCAR [I DON'T WANT REALISM] is a fragmentary reconstruction of Elia Kazan's 1951 film adaptation of Tennessee Williams's seminal text, A Streetcar Named Desire. Live actors mimetically reproduce the iconic performances of Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh, channeling the actors that have defined contemporary dramatic realism. As the film begins to fracture and decompose, it forces the performers, who are left with only their own voices and bodies, to find a new way through the text.
