This fall, I’m excited to teach a seven-week course, Intro to Neo-Futurism and Non-illusory Theater, as a collaboration between the SF Neo-Futurists and Endgames Improv. We’ll use movement, storytelling, and task-based exercises to write, direct, and perform own two-minute plays, written from your lives and direct experiences. We'll close the class with a showcase of student work in the Neo-Futurist aesthetic. Full details and sign-up at endgamesimprov.com/classes
Presented by foolsFURY's FURY Factory and the San Francisco Neo-Futurists, Infinite Resistance: 30 political plays in 60 liberatory minutes will present thirty plays interrogating, lampooning, and wrestling with contemporary politics, national and local. Plays that rage at injustice, celebrate the struggle, and champion community. Plays about immigration policy, microaggressions, self-care, gun control, queer politics, and more. Plays that dance, question, shout, and hold your hand. Three nights only at The Flight Deck, Oakland.
On March 16 & 17, 2018 at 10pm, an all-female performing ensemble will stage Infinite Bitch: 30 plays for Women’s History Month, at PianoFight, celebrating what’s glorious, grotesque, and galvanizing about saying ‘No thanks!’ to the patriarchy.

It will be the last 'Too Much Light' performed by all three Neo-Futurist groups — the others are in Chicago and New York — for the foreseeable future.
'Change is always hard,' says McCarthy, 'but change is also what we do. Like, change is our M.O. ... Being flexible and adaptable and moving very, very fast creatively are things we’ve been training ourselves to do together as an ensemble for the past three years.' "

"Yet that tinderbox is a hotbed of energy and creativity. Since their founding in 2014, the SF Neo-Futurists have been a vital addition to the Bay Area arts scene, giving weekly performances that are at once accessible and challenging, hilarious and probing, with the speed and athleticism of Olympians as well as the ever-imminent possibility that the whole show might descend into chaos."
