Spanish artist María Jerez will present The Case of the Spectator Sept. 23-25. The work is described as "a surreal thriller tinged with subversive humor. Equipped with a television and video camera, Jerez plays an armchair femme fatale who unravels the mysterious murders of a series of blonde bombshells. Over the course of the evening, Jerez deconstructs and reimagines iconic mid-twentieth-century crime fiction."
The Austin-based theatrical troupe Rude Mechs will offer The Method Gun, Feb. 23-26, 2011. Shawn Sides will direct the work written by Kirk Lynn.
According to Yale, "Acting guru Stella Burden suddenly and mysteriously moves to South America, leaving behind her devoted company members in the midst of a nine-year rehearsal process for A Streetcar Named Desire. In The Method Gun, the diaries and letters of Burden’s followers are pieced together to recreate the company’s final months of rehearsal. With biting wit and surprising tenderness, The Method Gun reveals the ecstasy and excesses of performance, the incompatibility of truth on stage and sanity in real life, and the indelible impact of mentors."
Dean Moss conceived and will direct Nameless forest, a collaboration with Korean artist Sungmyung Chun, which will run March 31-April 2, 2011.
Yale reveals that the two artists "fuse theatre, dance, video, and sculpture in Nameless forest. Layers of diary fragments, war zone imagery, mirror and neon effects, and an original environmental score combine to explore the relationship between performer and viewer." Tickets are available by visiting YaleRep or by calling (203) 432-1234. The University Theatre is located at 222 York Street in New Haven, CT.
