Not Man Apart–Physical Theatre Ensemble presents a wonderfully absurd and deeply philosophical hero story dramatized in the world of the graphic novel. An entertaining wild journey into our fear of the unknown, this original story of a career SuperHero whose marriage collapses when his wife develops the surprising ability to transform into other women. Devoted to security and order, the Hero discovers that he is terrified of change. He struggles to defend his sense of identity, to hold his ground at any cost, and finally to accept the loss, collapse, and revelation that come to pass. A Hero’s tale for a pop-culture age. A philosophical and psychological journey balanced with modern action, music, and absurd humor. NMA’s signature style is athletic, dynamic, and transformative; a marriage of classical literature and explosive movement, blending the world of modern dance, colored with the NMA signature athletic style set to edgy/funky remixes of pop songs.
