A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE [I DON'T WANT REALISM] is a fragmented reconstruction 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 gone on to define contemporary dramatic realism.​ The specter of the film begins to fracture and decompose forcing the performers, who are left with only their own voices and bodies, to find a new way through the text.
