Communicate More - Say Less: A Physical Storytelling Workshop with NYC’s Broken Box Mime Theater

Broken Box Mime Theater (BKBX) invites performers, directors, playwrights, theater artists, and the mime-curious of all backgrounds to join in exploring the audience's imagination as medium. 

Through the lens of narrative mime, participants will explore body language as it functions in communication. We will work as individuals, small groups, and as an ensemble to bring awareness to gesture, body shape, movement quality, and physical intention. Working in this way, the theater-maker (or theater-curious!) develops both efficiency and eloquence in movement on stage. The specific techniques of silent storytelling we discover (e.g. how to establish character, environment, conversation, circumstance without words) will expand our palette, offering new methods of creating stage imagery when working in any theatrical style. We will use creative play, creative problem-solving, and group innovation to make the seemingly unstageable stageable, introducing the audience’s imagination as a storytelling tool. Join us!

For ages 12 and up. No experience necessary, all access needs welcome. Wear comfortable clothes for movement.
