Our mission is to activate the imagination of our audiences, contemporize the art of mime, and remind us all of the power of simple storytelling.

Upcoming:

BKBX is thrilled to be among 5 companies in residence at the new Theatre Row over the next 2 years! Part of their inaugural Kitchen Sink Residency, our first work-in-progress showing is Valentine’s Day weekend, and our workshop show is comin’ up this July. More updates to come!

Every November Tuesday at 9pm
Nov 5, 12, 19, 26
The Striker Stage 123 E 24th St (b/t Park & Lex) New York, NY 10010

Thanks to the beautiful support of our community, BKBX flew to the Minneapolis Fringe in August to perform Quiet Riot, our all-comedies pop-up show that premiered at the PIT in 2017! We’re back in the city, back at the PIT, and proud to spend each Tuesday in November with an encore for our peoples! Whether you’re an old friend or brand new to our work, you’re invited to jump into the deep end with best-of BKBX funny faves like “Dungeons & Dragons,” “The Whole Shebang,” and “Fifth Wheel.” Join us, laugh, and tell your coworkers saw a mime show…and then tell them to come the following Tuesday.

SKIN

Broken Box Mime Theater (BKBX) activates their unique reinvention of throwback French pantomime to present a 90-minute collection of all-new stories that riff on the many layers of Skin: color, consent, border, point of contact, identity, a molting snake. There will be a Brooklyn beard competition, a dance of romance, and a sitcom gone awry. There will be wrestling and zombies. There will be lights, original music, and bodies telling each narrative, weaving them all into a singular evening of activated imagination and a dive into the deep deep.
