A Streetcar Named Desire
This production of Tennessee Williams' greatest tragedy interrogates the corrosive power of the American dream. The live-feed projections create an eavesdropping into situations and interactions happening beyond the main acting space as well as provide nuanced close-up images of the actors expressions and gestures that are vivid, dreamlike (or nightmare-like), and more penetrating than what can be observed with the naked eye.
