WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This multimedia solo performance transports an aching Stanley Kowalski from A Streetcar Named Desire to the year 2006, where he wanders the streets of America searching for Blanche Dubois. Hijacking imagery from the classic Tennessee Williams play and portions of the physical score from Elia Kazan's legendary film, the piece reveals a man who is part Stanley, part Brando, part living metaphor and part raw appetite. Stanley 2006 incorporates live feed video and rapid-fire collage to create a visceral close-up of a haunted man aching to get what he wants. STANLEY (2006) is being presented as a public showing of a work-in-progress. It will be followed by a conversation between the artists and the audience, the purpose of which is to offer the audience insight into the creative process while providing the artists with valuable feedback on the development of their work.
