TOPOGRAPHY is a evening of new and repertory works by Broken Box Mime. Pieces range from realistic to metaphorical, heart-wrenching to hilarious, cinematic to intimate and almost everything in between. The evening will feature pieces including:

• Zoo: When a child visits the gorilla cage at the zoo, she makes an unexpected
• Dungeons & Dragons: Follow three tweens as they play their favorite role-playing game. Root for your favorite player as they traverse swamps, mountains, caves, and everything in
between, as we pay tribute to our own bygone awkward years.
TOPOGRAPHY stars Tasha Milkman, Dinah Berkeley, Marissa Molnar, Leah Wagner, Geraldine Dulex, David Jenkins, Joel Perez, Matt Zambrano, and Joshua Wynter. The production features sound by Paul Baisley and lighting by Jamie Roderick

Broken Box Mime Theater (BKBX) is a collaborative group of artists who tell original stories through mime technique. Without the use of props, sets, costumes, or words, BKBX tells stories only using their bodies. The Company mission is threefold: to activate the imagination of audiences, contemporize the art of mime, and remind us all of the power of simple storytelling. BKBX has performed evening-length shows at Walkerspace, New York International Fringe Festival, The Kraine, and the June Havoc Theater at Abingdon, as well as appearances at The PIT, TADA! Theater, and Amios' SHOTZ! Festival, and several short films. BKBX also operates a wildly popular series of workshops in the art of silent storytelling, including a residency with the 52nd Street Project Teen Ensemble.
