The Neo-Futurists Open Up for One Night Only November 12th

Lessons in Creativity: How the world's most wildly productive ensemble creates 30 plays in 60 minutes, 50 weeks a year

Ever wondered what it takes to create new work every week as an ensemble member of The Neo-Futurists? Get a first hand glimpse into their fascinating and creatively demanding world with this one night only event.

On Thursday, November 12 at 7:00PM, The Neo-Futurists open up for a special Lessons in Creativity event where audiences have a rare opportunity to discuss with these versatile actor/writer/directors how they produce TOO MUCH LIGHT... each week. Using strong elements of teamwork while taking turns in leadership roles, The Neo-Futurists have kept artistry and fresh ideas as their top priorities while working on a strict time line for over 20 years. This event is a must-see for professionals and anyone interested in becoming more creative in work and in life. The evening includes a special performance of TOO MUCH LIGHT MAKES THE BABY GO BLIND followed by a presentation on the creative mechanics behind this ever-changing show.

Lessons in Creativity is an interactive group dynamic program run by the Neo-Futurists that has been presented at conferences by Adaptive Path, State Farm and most recently at the Cusp Conference "The Design of Everything" held at the MCA. Through the course of the evening, ensemble members share how they deal with conflict, respect the input of team members, set goals, keep deadlines, communicate effectively, forgive, trust, cross train, share values, handle failure and success and take risks.

The evening begins with a reception at 7:00PM, followed by performance of TOO MUCH LIGHT MAKE THE BABY GO BLIND at 7:30PM and the Presentation on Creativity at 8:45PM.

Tickets are $50 which includes the reception, performance, presentation and donation to The Neo-Futurists.  For tickets, call 773-275-5255 or visit
