About Nerve Project

Awaken Bravery!

The Nerve Project Theatre Company produces theatrical works that engage and cultivate bravery, empathy, and imagination in artists and audiences, alike. Nerve Project combines ancient theatrical forms with modern, revolutionary techniques and ideas, through the use of devised and classical texts, to celebrate the power of nerve and imagination.

“You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.” ― William Faulkner

If we confront what scares us, what lies outside the realm of possibility? Nothing.
