The New York Neo-Futurists create 
at the New Ohio
January 22 - February 14 2015

One of my favorite groups, the performance collective, the New York Neo-Futurists (Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind - TMLMTBGB) have announced their next mainstage production, THE HUMAN SYMPHONY, created and directed by Dylan Marron.  

When New York Neo-Futurist Dylan Marron took to the interwebs to find people willing to share their experiences with online dating, he received a treasure trove of funny, depressing, heartwarming, uplifting, and just plain terrifying stories. He crafted these first person accounts into a unique theatrical mosaic, offering an unflinchingly honest look at experiences (and experiments) in matters of the heart.

Performed in four "movements" by a cast of randomly selected audience members at each show, who are directed solely through instructional mp3 tracks, THE HUMAN SYMPHONYperformers” are guided through a theatrical Rube Goldberg experience. The remaining audience witnesses the action unfold as they listen to these first hand accounts of internet dating in NYC.

The cast features...you (or the person next to you, behind you, or across from you). 

The design team includes Ben Ahles (Set Designer), Sarah Livant  (Lighting Designer), Nicole Hill and Daniel Mirsky (Projection Designers), and Kyra Sims (Music Designer). The dramaturg is Meg Bashwiner. The Stage Manager is Sophie Kurtze.

Dylan Marron (Creator & Director) has been an ensemble member with the New York Neo Futurists since 2012 where he has created his own original work as well as performing in the work of others. In 2013 he wrote and directed Online Dating, the predecessor of The Human Symphony where four randomly selected audience members performed three true stories of sexual encounters through the internet. He was an ensemble player in The Complete & Condensed Stage Directions of Eugene O’Neill Vol. 2 (Drama Desk nom., N.Y.I.T. nom., New York Times Critic’s Pick) in May 2014. His original play Ridgefield Middle School Talent Nite (Capital Fringe Director’s Award winner, Washington Post Critic’s Pick) was featured at The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. Other stage credits: The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? (Arena Stage). Film/TV/Radio: Whatever this is. (Best Actor, Drama – Boston Globe) and Welcome to Night Vale.
