About The Builders
The Builders Association is an OBIE-award winning performance and media company based in New York City. For over 20 years, The Builders have been at the forefront of the integration of advanced technology and media with live performance. Innovative collaborations are at the heart of Builders productions, which combine media, architecture, light and sound with live performers into an integrated performance aesthetic that has become our signature. The Builders’ focus on “real world” stories as content for our productions — digging into subjects as diverse as Indian call centers, dataveillance, and the recent global economic crisis. We tell these stories through the lens of technology in order to creatively represent the economic, political, and technological forces which affect us daily — to make the invisible visible through the creative potential of multimedia theater.
Our educational programs have engaged diverse groups from a wide range of backgrounds, from high school to professional artists. We have presented workshops at Columbia University, New York University, University of California Berkeley, Ohio State University Columbus, University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana, Duke University, Gesnerallee Zurich, V2 Rotterdam, and many other institutions.
