NMA Mission Statement
Not Man Apart Physical Theatre Ensemble generates innovative physical works of theatre while contributing educational and transformational experiences.

“Director-choreographer John Farmanesh-Bocca rallies his stalwart forces into breath-taking kinetic cohesion.”  – LA times

Perhaps not since the emerging Theatre Movement Bazaar has a physical theatre troupe demonstrated such purposeful integrity. Indeed it would be madness to miss it. – LA Times

Not Man Apart - Productions and Shorts

NMA creates dynamic works of Physical Theater that are available for presentation and custom performances.  We specialize in a unique style of collaborative ensemble devised creation either with re-imagined classics or original scripts set into motion.
