WordPlay is a new spin on the age-old tradition of storytelling. With brazen honesty and creativity, actors, comedy writers, and everyday people read their own stories while our DJ spins a real-time soundtrack using anything from Brahms to Beyoncé. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll get an extremely intimate look into the life of a total stranger.
Bricolage’s 5th Wall series seeks to break down the barriers between scripted storytelling and current events in the world at large.
Bricolage’s Midnight Radio program is a long-time fan favorite that takes the form of a classic 1940s radio broadcast complete with commercial parodies, musical underscoring, and live Foley sound effects.
Bricolage Urban Scrawl (B.U.S.) is Bricolage’s annual fundraiser that takes the form of a 24-hour theatre festival. We give 6 playwrights 12 hours to each write a 10-minute play inspired by a 90 minute ride in a city bus.
The narrative around In the Raw has evolved over the years. From the early days of simple readings that supported playwright’s during their (re)writing process, to a festival that workshopped three plays selected from a call for submissions, and finally to a devised theatre festival that gave playwrights, directors, and actors the experience of creating new work from audience suggestions, In the Raw has always been an incubator for the practice of theatre.
IE’s are intimate theatrical experiences presented in bite-sized portions, designed to awaken, challenge, and place the audience at the center of the the performance.
