About Broken Box Mime Theater (BKBX)
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, we reimagine French pantomime through the lens of contemporary US American theater. The 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. Our short plays range from realistic to metaphorical, heart-wrenching to hilarious, and cinematic to intimate. Our mission is to activate the imaginations of our audiences, contemporize the art of mime, and remind us all of the power of simple storytelling. BKBXKids! Is a division of BKBX, and aims to inspire unplugged creativity in children and families by way of joyful, movement-based storytelling. “We celebrate the power of shared imaginative experience and challenge audiences to explore new ways to create, connect, and communicate!”
