The Neo-Futurists are a collective of wildly productive writer/director/performers who create:

Theater that is a fusion of sport, poetry, and living-newspaper.
  • Non-illusory, interactive performance that conveys our experiences and ideas as directly and honestly as possible.
  • Immediate, unreproducable events at headslappingly affordable prices.

We embrace those unreached or unmoved by conventional theater-inspiring them to thought, feeling, and action.

Every week we use a unique collaborative process to write rehearse and perform a new iteration of our signature late night show Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind.

Every year we produce at least three other World Premiere shows that are written or devised by our ensemble members.

Since TML opened this theater has produced more than 6,000 two-minute plays for TML, and more then 60 full length plays or site-specific theatrical events.

We are proud to keep our ticket prices affordable, and Thursday Nights at The Neo-Futurarium are always pay-what-you-can.

Our Statement of Purpose
As a group, we are dedicated to:

  • Strengthening the human bond between performer and audience. We feel that the more sincere and genuine we can be on stage, the greater the audiences identification with the unadorned people and issues before them.
  • Embracing a form of non-illusory theater in order to present our lives and ideas as directly as possible. All our plays are set on the stage in front of the audience. All our characters are ourselves. All our stories really happened. All our tasks are actual challenges. We do not aim to "suspend the audience's disbelief," but to create a world where the stage is a continuation of daily life.
  • Embracing the moment through audience interaction and planned obsolescence. In order to keep ourselves as alive on stage as possible, we interweave elements of chance and change — contradicting the expected and eliminating the permanent.
  • Presenting inexpensive art for the general public. We aim to influence the widest audience possible by keeping our ticket prices affordable and our productions intellectually and emotionally challenging yet accessible.
