Description

Brave Little Company is theater for everyone. Since 2013, they’ve been creating original plays about, with, and for kids and their grown-ups. They create theater the way kids play. When children engage in unstructured, imaginative exploration, their creativity is at full power, and they are at the center of the story. BLC’s plays may include found object puppetry, sensory storytelling, and a meaningful role for the audience in making the story happen. Committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion as limitless as Texas, they bring bilingual performances and workshops to schools, libraries, and community venues. Their current productions include the bilingual play First Day, Nueva Escuela, about a girl who overcomes her fear of reading by writing herself into stories; and Wooden O, a sensory Shakespeare adventure for ages 3-5. BLC offers theater workshops for everyone, including creative collaborations with students with learning differences. BLC also facilitates THE BIG ‘US’ PROJECT, a community-driven theatre piece led by 100 members of Texas’s refugee communities, now in its second year. They’re proud to tour Texas-wide through Young Audiences of Houston. Bookings include extension activities for teachers to implement in their classrooms.
