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.

Coming up!


An All-New Collection of Original Shorts

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
