What is bb brecht?
bb brecht, the cheeky alter ego of director/performer Miranda Haymon, reincarnates old Herr Brecht in a 21st century Black womxn who writes Notes app missives on his Instagram account. He takes the stage giving lectures, shaking his ass, performing songs, and sharing his anti-aging skin routine while audiences eat, drink, and discourse: a queer, Black, modern-day Cabaret Voltaire to herald a similar anarchy. bb is an influencer.
In Collaboration with New Georges, bb brecht will perform an ever-changing cabaret series shaped by and satirizing Bertolt Brecht’s theories of performance and modes of investigation. bb explores alienation, didacticism, and epicness in a 21st-century world using unboxing videos, green screens, TikToks, autotune—whatever our churning culture may hand him—in cabarets modeled on multi-segment TV variety shows.
