Artistic Director Gabriel Grilli says, “The talent, intelligence, diversity, range of training disciplines, and vibrant spirit of this group is just phenomenal. Bringing these artists on board as Ensemble Members is an amazing step in the development of BrickaBrack, and represents a major shift in the structuring of the company. It’s also an experiment – We’re three years old, and have never had a core group of this size! Personally, it’s the fulfillment of a dream I’ve had to be part of a consistent collaborative like this. Where we work together in the studio every week, dreaming, scheming, experimenting with processes, and generating new projects. I’m so excited to welcome these wonderful people to the BrickaBrack family, and to begin creating with them on an ongoing basis.”
