AWKWARD ELEPHANT PROJECT

Awkward Elephant Project aims to present cutting-edge theatre and original ensemble work relevant and applicable for the progressive, adventurous audience.  Founded by Alex Tobey, our work often explores taboo and controversial topics difficult to explore and receive, but always prompting a necessary dialogue with the self, the audience, and the artists.  Awkward Elephant Project premiered as Necessary Dialogue in 2010 with columbinus, and will produce Daniel Talbott’s Slipping in December.
