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.

Agrupación Señor Serrano is a Barcelona-based performing arts company, founded in 2006, that combines theatre, dance, video-art, and interactive technologies to explore human aspirations and the abuse of power. rserrano.com

“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’


“Constant dismantling of format and genre, fun experimentation, and simplicity of form paired with deep social and existential questioning.”

– El Mundo (Brazil)
