Mission:

Foreman's trademark "total theater" unites elements of the performative, auditory and visual arts, philosophy, psychoanalysis and literature for a unique result.  Foreman's style is not meant to be 'cerebral', but rather, the density of his compositional theater is an attempt to viscerally reflect and process everything that he has inherited from his explorations in twentieth century thought and art.  Foreman engages in what the poet John Keats famously described as "negative capability" - i.e. "when a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason."  He seeks to make work that unsettles and disorients received ideas and opens the doors for alternative models of perception, organization, and understanding.  Of course as times, technologies and experiences change, strategies must shift as well.  In 2005 Foreman began a second chapter in his work with the introduction of the digital video and film media as dominating forces in his redefinition of ontologically hysteric theater.
