Necessary I.T.E.M.S. Project is an award winning experimental theatre company. I.T.E.M.S. stands for Inner Truth, Experience, Movement, Style - all are items necessary in our creative work. Our actors look for INNER TRUTH of their characters and therefore - their own artistic truth. We train our actors to constantly search for and EXPERIENCE the emotional and intellectual states of their characters. Our directors love movement and choreography. MOVEMENT is life! We believe that bodies in motion are beautiful. As a collective of artists, we are in constant search of our own unique STYLE of expression on stage.
Man Frog and Other People
by Eugene Muzica
We are so happy to be presenting MAN FROG and OTHER PEOPLE by Eugene Muzica at Planet Connections Theatre Festivity 2018!!!
Necessary I.T.E.M.S. Project reinvents the famous fairy tale Frog Prince. Man Frog and Other People is a modern philosophical fairytale that explores contemporary issues and the eternal search for love through mythology, humor and dance. What if the Prince is not a frog? What if the Prince is gay? What if the king is dead? What if the yoga instructor is actually a witch? Wait, what? In the best traditions of Necessary I.T.E.M.S. Project, there will be dance, music and sheer insanity. Welcome to our Kingdom!
This production supports the Actors Theatre Workshop program The Builders Of The New World.
