Forget what you’ve heard about storks and storefront theaters – this is a story about speed, brevity, Italians and an art movement with a blind baby from the future glinting in its eye.¬†With me so far? No? Ok…you know what, why don’t you just enroll in our upcoming March 13th intensive about the origins of Neo-Futurism with The Neo-Futurists’ Founding Director Greg Allen?

Italian Futurist Performance: The Origins of Neo-Futurism will introduce you to the theory and history of the Italian Futurist movement, show you how it inspired and informed Neo-Futurism, and give you the chance to rehearse and perform a series of short Italian Futurist plays, just like the original group of Neo-Futurists did when they premiered Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind.
