In 2004, Ines Wurth and Mark Soper formed IMC Productions in order to take control of their artistic lives. They have committed themselves to creating works of high artistic caliber on themes that are relevant to the world today, to developing this material for stage, screen, television, internet, etc. so that they can enjoy a prosperous living, and to reach out to their fellows in the arts community to best ensure that these goals can be achieved by as many people as possible.
PROJECTS IN DEVELOPMENT
The Amnesty International Project
Using audience interaction, stylized re-enactment, and various multi-media presentations, “A.I.P.” dramatizes first person accounts of state sponsored terror. By portraying both perpetrators and
victims both today and in the past in seemingly endless overlapping
repetition “A.I.P.” captures the gruesome monotony of this horrific
aspect of the human condition. From Guantanamo Bay to Saudi Arabia,
from Rwanda to Darfur, from Buchenwald to The Killing Fields the
examples are more numerous then time or tolerance will permit.

perhaps we will fail a little less. That is the hope." -

I Miss Islam
Heidi, a non-believer, worked for the U.N. during the Bosnia /Serbian
crisis. After moving to Los Angeles, her marriage fails and her
daughter rediscovers her Moslem faith. Emulating her mother, she
volunteers to perform social work in Iraq where she is kidnapped, held
for ransom, and eventually executed. Heidi is determined to reclaim
her child's remains and to give her proper Islamic burial; but,
where? In Bosnia, in Iraq, the U.S., Mecca? In “I Miss Islam”, Ines
takes a character out of her previous one woman show (“I Miss
Communism”, everybody’s favorite character) in order to explore
questions of faith, identity and national boundaries.
