Brick and Bristle explore masculinity the only way possible, through a red nose and booty shorts. When does masculinity become toxic? With the smallest masks, these two clowns seek to unmask a space where masculinity can be vulnerable. Is castration inevitable? Don’t manspread too much.

Nathan Alford-Tate, Travis Draper & Rebecca Posner are devising artists from various parts of the US. Sharing a common education from the Devised Performance MFA program at UARTS/Pig Iron, we seek to create work that is interdisciplinary. We connect movement, music, text, and metaphors to realize our original pieces. Our mission is to create theatrical experiences that eschew the easy labels of “play” or “musical” and dissolve not only the barriers between stylistic modes but also the barrier between performer and audience.
