MARC FROST

Marc Frost was awarded 2014 Curatorial Residency in partnership with Alice da Cunha to launch Physical Festival at Links Hall, and a 2010/11 LinkUP Residency to support the completion of his work Superman 2050.

In 2010, Marc Frost created Theater Unspeakable as a platform for devising new physical theater projects. To date, the company has created four original touring pieces and is currently developing its fourth project based on the life of Sacagawea. Superman 2050, Murder on the Midwest Express, The American Revolution, Moon Shot. Based in Chicago, Theater Unspeakable has performed in 20 states and Washington DC in venues including: The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center Education, Palo Alto Children’s Theatre, Adventure Stage Chicago, and Chicago Children’s Theatre.

The physical theater practiced by the company draws upon the heavy influence of Marc’s time at the London International School of Performing Arts (LISPA). This two-year theater program based on the teachings of Jacques Lecoq exposed him to many different styles of theater. Since returning and founding the company, Marc has set a goal for himself and his collaborators to continue experimenting with these styles until they have broken ground on new forms of their own.
