Nellie Tinder creates original performance that combines formal innovation with moral investigation. We are interested in a highly personal idiom of theater that blends text, music and movement to create a unique live experience that rests on its own intrinsic norms. We are most interested in how the individual comes to impose order on the universe now that faith is not a mandate, but a choice. Nellie Tinder is Art. Appropriate & Instructive.
