“Destination: Everywhere” is a boisterous adventure that invites audiences to journey through invisible worlds. With a speaking host to guide even the youngest theater-goers, BKBXKids! weaves together nine inventive shorts into a rollicking hour-long program for K-3. This interactive performance is followed by a workshop where families meet the cast and learn how to mime! “Destination: Everywhere” has toured NYC this year at the Peoples Improv Theater, the Tilt Kids Festival at the Alliance Francaise, and BRIC Arts House.
BKBXKids!, a division of Broken Box Mime Theater, inspires unplugged creativity in children and families by way of joyful, movement-based storytelling. We celebrate the power of shared imaginative experience and challenge audiences to explore new ways to create, connect, and communicate.
BKBX is an award-winning collaborative theater company that performs original, contemporary short plays entirely through movement. Based in NYC and founded in 2011, they are breathing new life into the medium of mime. The diverse group of artists who call BKBX their artistic home believe in making innovative, provocative, joyful theater that champions the power of simplicity in performance. Set to lights and music, BKBX stories range from realistic to metaphorical, heart-wrenching to hilarious, and cinematic to intimate, held together by the belief that great theater requires little ornamentation, only great vision.
BKBX is the recipient of the New York Innovative Theater Awards for Outstanding Ensemble, Movement/Choreography, and Performance Art Production. Their mission is to activate the imagination of their audiences, contemporize the art of mime, and remind us all of the power of simple storytelling. More on BKBX here.
