About the show
For the first time in its history, the Guthrie will host Austin, TX-based theater collective Rude Mechs (aka Rude Mechanicals) in a development residency to present their latest original work Not Every Mountain, a beguiling meditation on change and permanence. Set against the backdrop of a soft-spoken rumination on life, relationships and ephemerality, performers use simple elements like string, cardboard and magnets to make giant mountains slowly rise, shift and grow. With some help from the audience, the mountains come alive, the seasons change and the moon makes its way across the sky.
Since 1995, Rude Mechs has created and produced a genre-defying slate of original works in Texas and toured nationally and abroad. Not Every Mountain is the first episode in Perverse Results, the ensemble’s long-form experiment in episodic collaboration.
We recommend children be 12+, but admit children as young as 8.
All tickets in the Dowling Studio are $9. Seating is General Admission.
