BUILT FOR COLLAPSE is a New York City-based arts organization dedicated to building multi-disciplinary communal celebrations that stimulate the senses. At times an erotic opera, at times a freakish and violent circus, Built for Collapse has been described as a subversive and "creative new approach to theatre." Work is developed by investigating a variety of material ranging from visual/performance art, film and existing texts and then merging that with original music, new and old forms of physical spectacle, innovative choreography and media. In this way we seek to develop a new language of performance in order to communicate with the audience on that night in that moment. www.built4collapse.wordpress.com
