 ***NO LATE SEATING***
The creation of the mortgage system. Tahitian paradises. 150,000 foreclosures in Spain in 2012. Marlon Brando. Using live feed video, rhythmic music, and minimalist choreography, Agrupación Señor Serrano creates a searing indictment of rampant consumerism and the speculative bubble. Brickman Brando Bubble Boom is an exuberant manifesto on the right to housing and the search for a home.

Press

"This inventive production uses various, seemingly incompatible materials — film clips, sheets of plastic foam, Monopoly sets — to create a D.I.Y. history pageant... Unforgettable."
- New York Times

 'A DIY spectacle not to be missed'
Theatermania

 “Constant dismantling of format and genre, fun experimentation, and simplicity of form paired with deep social and existential questioning.”
– El Mundo (Brazil)
