Neo-Futurists’ MD Steps Down, Search Under Way

Kendall Karg has left her position as managing director of The Neo-Futurists for a position with the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Karg launched the ongoing Neo-Lab new works program in 2016 with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and produced the program’s first four commissions, Tif Harrison’s “Saturn Returns,” Kirsten Riiber’s “Tangles & Plaques,” Nick Hart’s “Remember the Alamo” and Ida Cuttler’s “Comfortable Shoes.” She secured funding from the NEA to build a series of performances and workshops around “Tangles & Plaques” for students, doctors, nurses, and memory care professionals studying dementia and Alzheimer’s treatment, to be toured later in 2019.

Karg also led an overhaul of The Neo-Futurists’ brand in 2018, including launching a new logo, building a new website, and hanging a new sign over the theater’s doorstep for the first time in over a decade. In her time with the Neos she produced more than 15 full-length mainstage productions.

The company is accepting applications to fill the position through February 21:
