ANTIX!- A Multi-Media Production Company
As an emerging artist, I was fortunate enough to attend Carnegie Mellon University, graduating with honors in 2016. The theater department hosts a yearly festival called Playground, for a week classes are cancelled and students work on independent work. Soon, the school is overtaken by frenetic energy with many students committing to too many projects and subsequently getting too little sleep. Still, we were given two of the most valuable assets creatives desire: time and space.
Following graduation, these two assets become extremely limited, barely managing the hustle of work, our passions and “adulting.” My own stint in New York revealed just how much creativity is driven by economics. In my time assisting award-winning Broadway directors, I was astounded by the politics of the rehearsal room. Aggressive calendars and expenses stifled the directors to make split-second decisions, leaving little room for experimentation or collaboration.
Returning to the Fox Cities, I reconnected to the arts community and discovered the push-for-production to be universal across mediums. I recall the adage of the stage-hands, “We have been doing so much with so little for so long, now we can do almost anything with virtually nothing in no time at all.” This presents a major problem: collaboration and innovation are sacrificed for financial profitability. Thus, the idea for ANTIX! was born.
ANTIX! is an organization dedicated to artists and their ideas. We are committed to enabling artists to embrace the collaborative spirit, push their boundaries and astound audiences. We recognize the vital role of the arts within the community and our projects will enrich the culture of Northeastern Wisconsin and beyond. We will present multi-media productions including podcasts, theater productions, films and experiential pieces to engage audiences in new ways.
Prioritizing ideas and collaboration will liberate artists to challenge themselves, creating projects driven by curiosity and interest rather than financial motivations. This does not mean the organization won’t be economically feasible, but rather driven by the idea that if you create it, people will come.
Intrinsic to the mission and focus of ANTIX! Is the support of the community. Audience accessibility is a key value of ANTIX!, thus there will always be affordable ways engage with our work. Similarly, we will be an ecologically friendly company by minimizing waste and remaining ecologically conscious throughout each project.
We invite you to become part of our first annual fundraiser, BAM! happening this May. BAM! Is a 24-hour theatre festival where writers spend 90 minutes in a location about town. Then they meet a company of actors and are given the evening to write a new 10-minute play. The following day, actors recongregate and rehearse the new script to be presented at our VIP style evening. (Date with more event details TBA soon.)
As we emerge and grow, there are many opportunities to become involved with ANTIX! for both patrons and artists alike. Stay up to date through our website www.antixproductions.org , otherwise find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.
