Event Description

BRIC House Artist Studio

Theater designer and director Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter, Big Fish), musician and composer Mark Stewart (Bang on a Can All-Stars), and filmmaker Ragnar Freidank (The Beautiful Hills of Brooklyn) team up to create an unforgettable immersive installation in the Artist Studio at BRIC House.

Stepping into the world of Armchair Parade is to enter into a whimsical Brooklyn living room populated by a wacky mix of mismatched characters, watching the time go by. Sitting alone or in small groups, puppets created by Crouch gather around ubiquitous screens, isolated in their own worlds, but unified in their shared pastime. Visitors to the installation are invited to become a part of the world by playing The Big Boing—a handmade 24-foot lamellophone (a tined instrument) that stretches down the center of the room and was created by Stewart from mixed materials and found objects from the streets of Brooklyn.

Armchair Parade is the first project developed in BRIC’s new commissioning and residency program, BRIC House Fireworks. Funded by the Rockefeller Foundation’s Cultural Innovation Fund, Fireworks fosters the development of large-scale multidisciplinary work created by artist teams to engage with diverse Brooklyn audiences.
