What would you do if your son grew up to be Hitler? Disown him? Love him? Worship him? Kill him? So begins the tantalizing premise of “Going To St. Ives.”
“Spectacular…… emotionally and intellectually engrossing….” -Philadelphia City Papers
Aluminous started out as a sweet, multidisciplinary group of artists dedicated to exploring the life and death struggles of the two-character play, more commonly known as the “two-hander.” Seamlessly blending music, film, theatre, and anything else we could lay our hands on, each production was a 3-dimensional experience. For three years we saw nothing else worth doing and wanted for nothing more, but we came to understand that the true beauty of being Aluminous was exploring the interconnectedness of the multimedia process. And so it was with the birth of “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot” that Aluminous became a multimedia theatre company telling multidimensional stories.
We now have only one objective and it is to tell brilliant, provocative stories that speak to the incredible adventure called the human experience.
If you’re desperate to create passionate theatre we are hungry to meet you, no matter your background. Help us, join us, belong to us as we leap into the dark on flights of wild imagination and create the world we’ve always dreamed of.
