Necessary Angel produces compelling live performances driven by the creative instincts of current Artistic Director, Jennifer Tarver. The company collaborates with artist innovators to explore urgent ideas through original work and existing texts creating entertaining and enlightening experiences for intrepid audiences.
A river of ideas runs beneath us. The most relevant ideas are carried on the strongest currents. If listened to, an idea will find its voice. Given time, it will take form. Idea, therefore, motivates process. As a director, I want to use a new lens to examine ideas that disturb me, and through this process ultimately shift my own perspective. Working within a flexible and collaborative environment with a diversity of artists and disciplines, my task is to craft and ignite these forms in space. The beauty of an idea is that it can be embodied in so many different ways. Our vision supports the expansion of theatrical text in the service of compelling ideas.
