BkBx nominated for a New York Innovative Theater Award

We at Broken Box Mime Theater had a fantastic run of our latest show, AT FIRST SIGHT (AND OTHER STORIES), yet another great collection of all-original short works created without words and set to live and recorded music from local artists.

Check out our awesome review in The Examiner here!!

AND, we are up for a New York Innovative Theater Award!  Below are some beautiful live shots by Bjorn Bolinder from the title piece of the show, which depicts the story of two people meeting and falling in love… but in reverse– and I mean literally: part of the piece involves the entire cast rewinding in fast motion!  I miss seeing these fools every week:

Once again, the amazing company of Broken Box Mime Theater has created an incredible show of original works.  AT FIRST SIGHT (AND OTHER STORIES) opens next week and runs November 7-23 at Dixon Place.  I am so grateful to be a part of this family and have the opportunity to squeeze exciting work straight out of our collective brain.  And tech week is here: the squeeze is on! Hooray!

Broken Box Mime announces November show!

I am thrilled to encourage one and all to save the date for Broken Box Mime Theater‘s newest upcoming show, AT FIRST SIGHT (AND OTHER STORIES).  We will be running November 7-23 at Off-Off-Broadway’s long-revered startup artist hotspot, Dixon Place.

Check out the article on broadwayworld.com!

The show will include some of our classic work, but will mostly be an incredible chance to see new short-form pieces devised by the company.  I am so proud to be a part of this creative, smart, and loving family of artists– especially at such an exciting time in the company’s development as we expand our reach!

Workshop with Blessed Unrest

I recently had the honor to attend a callback-workshop with the talented devised theatre company Blessed Unrest.  This balls-out, passionate, utterly delightful group of people runs the company in an Eastern European style that reminds me of my work with Synetic Theater— they hold “workshops” to teach new potential company members to work together to use a unique set of skills, and then tap people to work on shows based on what the company is creating.  The company draws on ideas from Suzuki, Viewpoints, pantomime, clown, and classical acting, to name a few sources.  It was fantastic to reaffirm my love for this work– can’t wait to see what the future holds!

New Company Member at Broken Box Mime Theater

I am delighted to announce that I will be joining Broken Box Mime Theater as a new Company Member this fall!  I am very much looking forward to putting on my story-writing hat and my best mimeface and playing with this innovative, funny, moving, modern, sexy, silent group of creative movers and thinkers!  Stay tuned for info about their next show– in the meantime, here are some pics from a crazy fun circus gig I did in June with Aerial Acrobat Entertainment:
