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:

QUIET RIOT!

The Essential Best-of Comedies
From NYC’s Freshest Mimes

 

Over the last eight years, BKBX has collected a vibrant repertoire of over 140 original short plays. In 2018 we compiled a set of our favorite funnies for an all-comedy pop-up, QUIET RIOT, which are thrilled to tour to the Minnesota Fringe this summer!

Coming to Minnesota Family Fringe…

Our delightful children’s show, DESTINATION: EVERYWHERE, was chosen as one of 10 family shows to kick off the festival in “Family Fringe.” Help us bring some of our most heartwarming and giggle-inducing work to a brand new community!

We are proud to be compensating our artists with competitive performance fees, and your donations will pay for: flights, postcards, festival fees, and food for our traveling artists.

SKIN

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
