As most of you are aware, New York City will require proof of vaccination for indoor performances beginning September 13th. We will be enforcing this policy for all upcoming performances, and ask that all audience members, regardless of vaccination status, remain masked. All staff and performers will be vaccinated, performers may not be masked. Audience can provide proof of vaccination with a government issued I.D. along with a COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or the Excelsior Pass App. We are navigating this day to day just like all of you so please be patient with staff when you attend your next Brick event. We love all of you.

A performed poem of internet ephemera, personal digital artifacts, elephants. None of the words are mine, but I’ve said all of them. (I was definitely here the past year, but I don’t remember if it was me or if it was all these other people.) An attempt to ask the question, what is a chorus?
A short fable written, performed by, and about decaying bodies. Please enjoy!

Created and performed in collaboration with Ira Joan Macner
RAWYA EL CHAB
Lula 19/85 is an experimental multidisciplinary piece exploring political martyrdom in the future. The spectators will witness Lula, a cyborg broadcasting their last message before their final mission, meanwhile, further in the future, two historians/archeologists decipher the message through audiovisual interpretations. The piece explores the inevitable environmental crises of our planet and raises questions about what remains of our discourse for future generations.
Rawya El Chab (Writer, director, performer) is a Lebanese theater maker based in New York City. Her work falls at the intersection of art and spell making. She emphasizes the development of ludic practices and the democratization of the tools of theater as a means to dismantle modes of oppression and promote social justice.
Lina Younes (Set and Costume designer) is a New York based Palestinian Lebananese visual designer in theater, film, animation, and installations. Lina is an imagineer creating worlds with one eye shut and an index finger as her wand, and has a great love and a great weakness: soap bubbles.
Hengameh Fallah (Video Designer) is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York City. Hengameh’s works mainly focus on human emotions, experiences and communications as individuals and in communities. She is currently doing her MFA in Performance and Interactive Media Arts at the City University of New York.
