Running Time: 75 minutes
Instant Vaudeville: Breaking Bamboo is a series of 8 original works by new and emerging Asian American artists, culminating in four free public performances. A staple of 2g's annual programming, it challenges teams to create live theatre in a fast, furious and collaborative manner over the course of one week. Playwright/director and/or devising ensembles will create 6-8 minute pieces of theater across a variety of genres such as puppetry plays, musicals, improvisation, choreography (dance and/or fight), clowning, physical theater, dramas and comedies.
