Communicate More - Say Less @ Miners Alley

A PHYSICAL STORYTELLING WORKSHOP WITH NYC’S BROKEN BOX MIME THEATER

Broken Box Mime Theater (BKBX) invites performers, directors, playwrights, theater artists, and the mime-curious of all backgrounds to join in exploring the audience’s imagination as medium. From the perspective of BKBX’s unique brand of mime based in American narrative style, participants will look at body language, basic mime technique, staging metaphor, efficiency in storytelling, and devised process.

The specific techniques of silent storytelling we discover (e.g. how to establish character, environment, conversation, circumstance without words) will expand our palette, offering new methods of creating stage imagery when working in any theatrical style. We will use creative play, creative problem-solving, and group innovation to make the seemingly unstageable stageable, introducing the audience’s imagination as a storytelling tool.
