The Sodre-Uruguay National Ballet Company presents its choreographic adaptation of A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennesse Williams. It is a powerful free version devised by the choreographer, Mauricio Wainrot (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1946) which transmits the intensity of this harrowing story.
The play includes music by Béla Bartók and a minimalist stage design, so it is the performers who provide all of the drama of the tale through their movements. We are told how Blanche visits her sister, Stella, who is married to the rough Stanley. Blanche pretends to lead a life of luxury but in reality, she has lost the family estate due to a poor harvest. This is added to the psychological imbalance that she has been suffering from for years, which ends up gradually destroying her personality.
