    Immersive Theater Experience Was Designed With Autism-Spectrum Audiences In Mind

    "But there’s no conventional narrative. Rather, families wander a forest-themed playground decked out with life-sized, corrugated-cardboard trees, meeting hand-puppet animals and friendly park rangers. There are sing-alongs, sensory-based activities, crafts and more."

    The 10 best Pittsburgh theater experiences of 2017

    The biggest of Bricolage’s go-big-or-go-home immersive projects was a mysterious, eerie and even a bit spiritual trip through the innards of the city’s largest venue, the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History.

    "The Clearing" at Bricolage Production Company

    "What’s on offer here is a small journey into your own relationship to fear, worry, anxiety, truth, lies, and betrayal – which means that (as with each of the immersive works Bricolage has created to date) your experience will be unique, personal, idiosyncratic, and quite possibly – as was my case – uncannily refreshing."

    Bazaar: A Micro Immersive Carnival

    "There were plenty of carnival games and performances, including Joseph Kerr the fire breather, acrobatics by ThaCrowBats and fire gypsy Kai Phoenix. DJ Pandemic kept the soundtrack carnival-cool as guests gathered to take a shot at the dunk tank, play ring toss and visit the food trucks."

    Children's Theater Festival takes over Pittsburgh's Cultural District

    Beyond the Comfort Zone at the WoW and BOSSS Festivals

    “The best show at WoW was one I didn’t see. Instead, it was one that I smelled, listened to, and touched. In Bricolage’s OjO (“eye” in Spanish), I was blindfolded and taken on a trip to Mumbai, where the sound of the street bustle hit my ears, where curry tingled my nose (and made my stomach growl), and a chicken ran past my bare leg, making me flinch. At one point, I was at a bass-heavy dance party and someone grabbed my hand and asked me to dance.”

    Stage review: 'SAINTS TOUR' draws visitors into a communion with Braddock

    "Nothing is more eye-opening than the view back over the Mon Valley from the top of the Monongahela Cemetery, the distant sky painted golden red as evening falls. Has new-mown grass ever smelled sweeter? Have the shimmering towers of Pittsburgh far to the west ever seemed more magical?

    The Walls Come Tumbling Down

    "If in proscenium theatre the playwright is king, then in immersive theatre the audience wears the crown. In order to get a full experience, a person attending an immersive show might need to sing for his or her supper by walking around, snooping through drawers, talking to actors, playing at dying—things that are not usually allowed in a proscenium house. And, in most cases, spectators will not see everything. "
