Known for performing 50 weeks of the year, The Neo-Futurists took an unprecedented step to suspend performances of its “surprising, occasionally powerful, often
hilarious and always entertaining” ( Chicago On Stage ) show, along with classes, events, and other ancillary programming in order to ensure the safety the ensemble, staff, students, and audiences as concerns regarding the containment of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) evolved. To honor the non-stop nature of The Neo-Futurists’ work, the ensemble has created an easily accessible version of The Infinite Wrench by adapting current works for online audiences, which is accessible on its website, neofuturists.org
The Infinite Wrench Goes Viral will be available to subscribers of The Neo-Futurists’ Patreon site. Several tiers have been made available to those able and interested in supporting the organization and its various communities during this dire time. The base-level perk, which starts at just $3.00 per show, offers the opportunity for patrons to watch the show from the comfort of their own homes, where they can choose the order of the show, just like they can at the traditional Infinite Wrench.
