Mr. Kozak’s Theatre Ensemble class has been performing their original plays in the style of Neo-Futurism. This was a short-lived artistic movement that erupted after World War II as a reaction to it’s rampant destruction and advanced weaponry. Neo-Futurists rejected museum art pieces meant to stand the test of time and opted instead for works made fast, to be performed once and then thrown away. His class applied these principles by creating 25 original plays based on things that have happened to them. The order in which each play is performed is determined by the audience calling out a number corresponding to each play. The order is therefore random and the actors have to be prepared for their plays to be called at at a moments notice. A timer set at 50 minutes adds another layer of suspense as the actors are forced to complete their performance in this time. Audience members are often called on to participate in this controlled chaos as actors, board game players, and even therapists. Teachers have been taking their classes during Block 1A to be a part of this show never to be performed again!
