THE PROJECT
Clasped hands in light. Fingers clench. A world is created. "The Man Who Wasn’t There" is dance-theatre virtuosic, spinning a new myth as old as time. A man goes on a journey through the most important relationships in his life, weaving all past and future into the NOW.


WHERE IT WILL HAPPEN
Created by FT Collaborative, an ensemble of New York based performance artists, "The Man Who Wasn’t There" will be presented in New York City through the summer of 2012 (and hopefully) beyond.

WHO WE ARE
Our ensembles' interests and talents are as diverse as the group itself. We come from San Francisco, Los Angeles, Providence, Jamaica, Singapore, Puerto Rico, and beyond. Between us we have worked on performance projects across the globe. We are interested in what we have in common as human beings. We believe that performance is a bridge, that it is deeply imbedded in our nature, and provides a means toward social change and greater understanding of our shared condition.
