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. Written and directed by Lisa D'Amour and performed by Todd D'Amour with video by Tara Webb, this production will play as part of HERE's 2006-2007 season, which features six new multi-disciplinary shows, two festivals and the completion of its renovations, scheduled for winter 2007.
