Cultural Series: Infinite Wrench
Posted 04/10/2018 04:56PM

On the night of April 8, the ongoing cultural performance series at Forman School presented the Neo-Futurists, a New York city-based experimental theater group founded in 1988. Their current show is called "Infinite Wrench" in which the group presents 30 two-minute plays in a fast-paced hour of in-your-face drama, comedy, music, terror, fear, and whatever else may come up in an effort to upset the perceived conventions of live performance.

And that they did. The stage of the Jake Cloobeck '16 theater at the Visual and Performing Arts Center came alive with a series of sketches about racism, feminism, transgender bathrooms, and white privilege. One play was called "In Other News, this is what it feels like when I read news" in which an actress opened a newspaper and the other members of the troupe came running out and yelled headlines (Russia! Immigration! Climate change!) at her as they smacked her paper. It was an unusual and thought-provoking evening of entertainment.
