Interactive Livestreamed Theatre
LOCAL>> Brilliant Mind (Premiere)
Premiere presentation – a new kind of theatre, shaped by your choices as you watch
May 18 – June 13
Created and Written by Denmo Ibrahim
When Dina and Yusef learn of their estranged father’s death, they step in and bury a man they never knew. Will brother and sister face their truths once family secrets come to light?
Inspired by true stories of first-generation Americans, Brilliant Mind takes a hard look at generational trauma, the struggle between self and family, and the weight of carrying a legacy. It’s an excavation of the politics of gender in immigrant communities and the challenges ever present between tradition and culture. This is a story of hope, about what gets lost in translation, and what happens when we dare to love unconditionally.
In this extraordinary live and interactive digital experience, explore the family ties that bond and break us, the healing that comes through death, and the acceptance that our parents do the best they can—the rest is up to us.
When you watch Brilliant Mind, you’ll be seeing a new kind of theatre–with some portions filmed in advance, some performed in the moment as you live stream the performance, and the entire experience shaped by the choices you make as you watch on your own home screen.
