The creation of Neoteny Theatre came from a desire to produce contemporary re-imaginations of classic works and introduce little known and under-produced contemporary works. With a focus on work that is bold, playful, honest, and maybe a little weird, Neoteny takes its name from a passage from Tom Robbins’ Still Life With Woodpecker: "'Neoteny' is 'remaining young,' and it may be ironic that it is so little known, because human evolution has been dominated by it. Humans have evolved to their relatively high state by retaining the immature characteristics of their ancestors. Humans are the most advanced of mammals -- although a case could be made for the dolphins -- because they seldom grow up. Behavioral traits such as curiosity about the world, flexibility of response, and playfulness are common to practically all young mammals but are usually rapidly lost with the onset of maturity in all but humans. Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature."
