Thanks for the makeup, MAC!

A huge (silent) shout-out to MAC Cosmetics for their generous donation of some amazing products for the production of Above / Below. And thanks to MAC's generosity, we'll likely be able to use what we've received for performances to come!


Our makeup is an integral part of the aesthetic of Broken Box Mime Theater. The white makeup neutralizes the performer, allowing them to transform into different characters across age and physicality.

For Above / Below, we tried something new with our audiences -- we actually put our makeup onstage as a pre-show immersion. We wanted to invite the audience in, and bring them along with us as we transformed ourselves into neutral players of their imagination. We found that our audience really appreciated seeing what goes into creating our "mask", and got to see us play with our brand-new kits stocked with awesome MAC products!
