From August 24-27 Broken Box Mime Theater (BKBX) will be in residence at the Bennington Center for the Arts!
Winners of the 2016 New York Innovative Theatre Awards for Outstanding Ensemble, Performance Art, and Choreography/Movement, BKBX is back in the studio to create new work that activates the imagination of their audiences, contemporizes the art of mime, and reminds us all of the power of simple storytelling. Set to lights and music, pieces range from realistic to metaphorical, heart-wrenching to hilarious, cinematic to intimate and everything in between, held together by the belief that great theater requires little ornamentation, only great vision.
Join us on Sunday, August 27th at 2pm to learn about contemporary mime, collaborative process, and how simple storytelling can be a vehicle for impactful theater. This engaging, informal presentation with the company is open to all!
Admission is "pay what you can" and all ages are encouraged to attend. Funds received will go directly to the artists.
A generous donor will provide a dollar for dollar match for the admissions collected from this event and that match will be applied to the Bennington Center for the Arts performance fund. This is an excellent opportunity for you to support to both your local venue and the artists whom we serve.
The covered bridge museum and galleries will be open from 10am until 5pm this day as well. Should you choose to further explore our exhibits, admission is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors and children 12 and under are free. The Bennington Center for the Arts will be offering a 10% discount on any new memberships or renewals made on this day which, among other benefits, will allow you free access to our galleries and exhibits year round!
