About Mondo Bizarro

Mondo Bizarro Productions  is a New Orleans-based company that has been creating interdisciplinary art and fostering creative partnerships in local, national and international communities for eighteen years. Our creative endeavors range from ensemble performances to large-scale community festivals, from innovative digital storytelling projects to site-responsive productions. As artists of place, our journeys begin and end in New Orleans: we tour to embolden our efforts here.  Our creations embody the urgency of our desire to listen to our land and culture, develop allies in collective action, and provide a platform for using art as a tool to understand what makes us commonly human and individually unique. Since 2002, our wide array of imaginative projects have toured to art centers, universities and outdoor locations in 38 states across the country and abroad.

We braid four distinct program areas to accomplish our collective mission: MB Productions, MB Training, MB Presents and MB Studios.  

 

MB Productions is the vehicle for our original projects. These works are intentionally multi-disciplinary, ranging from physical theater performances to large-scale community festivals, from innovative digital storytelling to site-responsive productions. Our projects have been experienced in art centers, universities and outdoor locations in 38 states across the country and occasionally abroad.

MB Training is our educational arm, a creative laboratory for the company and the home for our enquiry into thinking about, through and with the body. It is an intensive site of exploration for people who are curious about physical and vocal training, the centrality of place in the creation, presentation and touring of original performance work, and what a deep investment in social change could look like in the lands and communities they call home. 

MB Presents is a multi-disciplinary presenting and residency program that produces performances, workshops, films and programs by local, regional, national and international artists.    

MB Studios is our full-service documentation and consulting division.  We provide our skills as event producers, storytellers, cultural strategists and communication specialists to help you reach your goals. 

Since 2012, Mondo Bizarro has been housed in Catapult, our 4000 square foot performance center dedicated to the development of original theater and innovative design. As a resource for the New Orleans arts and activism communities, Catapult provides space for rehearsals, trainings, meetings and workshop performances from local and national individuals and organizations. It is an inclusive space where respect, justice and freedom are practiced and supported.
