Built for Collapse

Danger Signals

A woman gives a lecture about the brain. A woman gives a lecture about a man and his brain. A woman bakes a cake. Fuck that. She does nothing like that. A woman puts on a large hat and plays at being a man, pushing a sharp object through the soft bit of an eye socket. Chalk dust falls from the ceiling and two monkeys talk about the ways that pain is processed by the brain. Becky and Lucy. Doctor Walter Freeman. War is coming. Count backwards from ten. Becky and Lucy. Becky and Lucy. Becky and Lucy. Becky and Lucy. Becky and Lucy. Becky and Lucy. War is coming, always. DANGER SIGNALS is a multidisciplinary fantasia about monkeys, brains and how we deal with our problems. 

Built for Collapse is an award-winning theater company committed to building multi-disciplinary work that challenges theatrical form. They develop each project through a highly physical process inspired by found texts, visual art, and pop culture to create a live collage of the world and its stories. "An ambitiously subversive young troupe" (Time Out NY), they have developed work nationally and internationally with The Drama League, NYTW, BRIC Arts | Media House, Ars Nova, 3LD, Prague Film and Theater Center, and others.
