BODY/LANGUAGE (work-in-progress) will explore the communicative capacity of the body through playing and plays, developed and performed by an ensemble of BKBX mimes, live musicians, and ASL-using artists. Working as a collective, they create a one-act work of performance composed of several short-form narratives which, individually and as a whole, explore the capacity of the body to communicate. Some may break the fourth wall and/or expose the investigative process of translation between our mediums and some may be in BKBX’s more narrative style, featuring actors within an imagined scene, scenario, or abstracted metaphorical space. BODY/LANGUAGE will be the culmination of a rich investigative process that crosses disciplines and movement languages. Both nights will be ASL interpreted.

The program will be about an hour and there will be an opportunity to engage with the artists towards the end of the program.

The artists will also ask all attendees who are willing to briefly turn on their cameras in the middle of the show.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Becky Baumwoll (Company Member, Artistic Director) has performed with words regionally, off-Broadway, and in projects with Amios, Paper Canoe, and Ozet. She has directed with Opera On Tap, the Parsnip Ship, and Red Lab Productions. Becky graduated Tufts University magna cum laude with a degree in International Relations and a Studio Art minor. She teaches with Broken Box and is part-time adjunct faculty at The New School’s College of Performing Arts, teaching Physical Storytelling and Body Languages to undergraduates. Becky is a teaching artist with ASTEP and the IRC. 

Broken Box Mime Theater (BKBX) is a collaborative theater company that performs original, contemporary short plays entirely through movement. Based in NYC and founded in 2011, BKBX reimagines French pantomime through the lens of contemporary US American theater. The manifoldly diverse group of artists who call BKBX their artistic home believe in making innovative, provocative theater that erases the language barrier and champions the power of simplicity in performance. Their short plays range from realistic to metaphorical, heart-wrenching to hilarious, and cinematic to intimate. When on tour, their foundation of a 140-piece repertoire offers the ability to tailor a setlist to the space, audience, accessibility, or thematic needs of presenters and collaborators.


BRIClab is a multi-disciplinary residency program created to advance opportunities for visual artists, performers, and media makers.

This newly reimagined program offers emerging and mid-career artists essential resources, mentorships, and opportunities to share their work. The residency aims to build a stronger and more diverse artistic community in Brooklyn by supporting long term growth and fostering relationships across disciplines.

The program's four tracks are Contemporary ArtFilm + TVPerforming Arts, and Video Art. Each track offers unique resources designed to meet the needs of varied artistic practices. Residents receive additional financial support, mentorship, skills-based learning opportunities, and documentation of their work. In-progress public programs (virtual and later live) will take place from September 2020 through June of 2021.
