Infinite Variety Productions (IVP) is a 501c3 theatre company dedicated to spotlighting women who have gone unnoticed throughout history and demanding awareness of women's roles in historical, current and possible events.
In Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra, Antony says of Cleopatra:
Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale
Her infinite variety
IVP believes all women are made of infinite varieties and deserve to be celebrated and revered.
In Their Footsteps: Live-Streamed Performance & Italian Adventure
The highly-acclaimed and powerful production, In Their Footsteps is back again this October and November 2021, this time with a new cast and BIG news. IVP is the proud and grateful recipient of the 2021 City Corps grant, which is permitting us to host an in-person and live-streamed performance at the Kraine Theater on October 26th free of charge. However, we need all of the help we can get as, shortly thereafter, IVP will travel with the production to Italy to participate in the OnStage Festival in Milan and Rome, November 9th through the 13th. Contributions will go toward round-trip airfare and rehearsal stipend for the cast and crew.
Can We Talk: December 2021 NYC Run & Feature Film Release
Rooted in the true story of WWII WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots) Carla Howard Horowitz and the COVID-19 pandemic through the lens of two roommates in NYC, Can We Talk? is premiering on the stage AND the big screen this December 2021. Your contributions will support the artists involved in the rehearsal and performance process for the theatrical version, as well as the artists involved in post-production and theatrical release of the feature film.
Underground Astronauts: Workshop & Partnership with the American Museum of Natural History
IVP is thrilled to be crafting the story of the women behind the discovery and excavation of Homo naledi in South Africa. We are even more excited that the American Museum of Natural History has issued a letter of intent to work alongside of IVP in the development and presentation of this piece. Currently in the workshop stage, your contributions will aid IVP in research and development of the piece, as well as providing stipends for the artists as they use their time and talent to bring this story to life in Spring 2022.
Nellie & the Women of Blackwell: Pre-Production for a VR Immersive Experience
Nellie & the Women of Blackwell premiered at Wildrence Immersive in the Lower East Side of NYC February-March 2020 to critical acclaim. However, the energy of this piece was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2022, IVP wants to revive this engaging and important piece by restaging it in another immersive space and expanding its reach by translating it into a virtual reality experience. Contributions for this project will go toward securing the proper equipment, space, and crew to develop and execute the experience.
As you can see, all of these projects require a lot of time, talent and effort. We as a company are committed to paying our artists and administrators fairly, and we absolutely cannot do that without the support of our patrons.
We are so grateful to everyone that donates their time or their financial support to our endeavors. Together, we can shape a powerful, global community of people that want to understand the whole story that history tells so that we can all build a more well-informed, empathetic, inclusive society now and in the future.
