BRICOLAGE BIZARRE COLLABORATIVE presents

Bird House: An unfolding of events in real time with real people

 

Bird House is a performative experience for all to engage. This interactive journey calls attention to the repetitive motions of our everyday occurrence. Housed within Woodland Pattern Book Center for four hours the troupe will unfold multiple vignettes comprised of text, animated projections, movement, and sound. Bricolage Bizarre’s is a gentle choreography of the handmade, offering glimpses of humor through monologue, poetic movement, and a dialogue of sounds. The viewer is promised a real experience of laughter, nostalgia, and head scratching.   

 


BRICOLAGE BIZARRE's debut was a 2004 experimental performance inspired by lighthouses, clothes lines, cabaret, Jean Cocteau, and Japanese Butoh theater. Their common interests in the moving image combined with the human body, poetry, sound, and art brought the trio together. With the mission is to create thought provoking experiential work, Bricolage Bizarre invites the viewer to tease out from the work something familiar and strange. Founding members are Raina Benoit, Angela Livermore, and Aurelien Piantanida.
