Sustaining consistent, high-quality output is an ongoing challenge for designers, managers and others charged with creative responsibilities. This is especially true in a fast-paced work environment. But we are not the first to face this problem. Our colleagues in other creative disciplines have dealt with these same issues and developed effective ways to not only support their efforts, but to excel while doing so. From them, we can gain insight into our own work. The Neo-Futurists, a Chicago-based theater company, has developed a unique system for the ongoing development and performance of new work. Their production, Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind, includes 30 plays in 60 minutes, with the group producing two to twelve new plays each week. Over eighteen years, the company, which has been fertile ground for many artists, has always focused on creating compelling stories and sharing these with their audience. In this session, Jay Torrence and Sarah B. Nelson will discuss how the Neo-Futurists have managed their creative environment, both as individual contributors and as a supportive group of artists. They will look at the mechanics of the Neo-Futurists’ production Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind and discuss the specific techniques, attitudes and approaches members of the company have used to inspire, develop and support great work.moreless
