    Theater: Dance Theater Workshop / 219 West 19th Street, New York, NY, 10011

    Synopsis: 

    Critically acclaimed Austin, TX ensemble, Rude Mechs, makes its Dance Theater Workshop debut this winter. The Method Gun explores the life and techniques of Stella Burden, actor-training guru of the 60s and 70s. Ms. Burden's training technique, The Approach (often referred to as "the most dangerous acting technique in the world"), fused Western acting methods with risk-based rituals in order to infuse even the smallest role with sex, death and violence. The Method Gun re-enacts the final months of her company's rehearsals for their nine-years-in-the-making production of A Streetcar Named Desire. Physically visceral and visually haunting, The Method Gun is a play about the ecstasy and excesses of performing, the dangers of public intimacy, and the incompatibility of truth on stage and sanity in real life.

    Stell-aaa! Where Are You? And Where’s Your Sister?

    Jason Zinoman

    March 6, 2011: “The Method Gun” can seem like a revue made up of experimental theater acts. There’s a short, silly one-man dance; some audience participation; multimedia inside jokes hinting at classic plays; and, of course, nudity. For laughs.
