Overview

About the show

This summer the Guthrie is hosting nationally recognized theater collective Rude Mechs in a development residency to present their latest work, Not Every Mountain – a beguiling meditation on change and permanence. Set against the backdrop of a soft-spoken rumination on life, relationships and transience, performers use simple elements like string, cardboard and magnets to make giant mountains slowly shift and grow. With help from the audience, the mountains come alive, the seasons change and the moon makes its way across the sky.
