The Million Underscores stage this genre-bending work, modulating between visual composition, soundscape, performance, and choreography, to emphasize the distance between words, objects, sound, and…


March 26 - March 29

DEVOTION DEVOTION is an experimental performance by dance artist Lydia Mokdessi and musician Jason Bartell. The duo have developed shared practices of sonic and physical droning, navigating a series of structural trap doors that invite dissonance and distortion in order to de-fetishize the artistic “hand.” Deconstructed memories and cinematic debris are conjured and pressurized into opulent loops and choreography that trouble the relationship of the body to identity, spectatorship, objectification, service, submission, and control, attempting to obstruct intentional decisions-making, erase…

Subscribe to our Mailing List

As of January 1, 2020 the new artistic team of the Brick has fully moved in: Theresa Buchheister has assumed the role of Artistic Director of The Brick. Theresa is joined by Associate Artistic Directors Ryan William Downey and Travis Just, along with a team of collaborators that includes Harrison Rivers, Nicolás Noreña, Justin Linville, Yuki Kawahisa, Teresa Braun, and Alyse Lamb.

They are honored to have the trust and support of co-founders Michael Gardner and Robert Honeywell and the Board of Directors, as they take the space in new directions, building on valuable time spent in downtown theatres, Brooklyn DIY venues, and weird basements.

This new team will usher The Brick into its third decade with a bold new vision and an abiding belief in the power of art. With a renewed focus on multi-week theatrical runs and a dynamic line-up of singular one-off events, The Brick will remain Williamsburg’s primary incubator of innovative theater and performing arts.
