This devised, ensemble driven theatrical event takes was inspired by the theme of "migration" and brought up many questions for the students including; Where do we come from? Where are we going? What happens to the ones that stay?
The Fall 2015 NTI/NMTI Company debuted Because of Reasons on Friday, December 11 and Saturday, December 12 at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s Waterford, CT campus.
The Company Debut is a signature of the National Theater Institute’s training. Emerging artists are prompted with thematic material and must collaborate to write, compose, produce, cast, direct, design, choreograph, and perform an original production in under two weeks. It is the capstone of 14 weeks of rigorous training in a variety of disciplines including acting, directing, playwriting, design, movement, and voice.
