Event Details

Brick by Brick

Land has memory, buildings have memories. The untold stories that populate every brick of USC's campus deserve to be listened to, because by listening we question, we honor, and we speak our truth. Intended to be listened to while walking through USC's campus, Brick by Brick allows for a truly immersive theatrical event featuring six stories based on USC’s history researched, written, directed, acted, and sound designed by USC students entirely remotely. Listen to this new audio-theatre experience by the Aeneid Theatre Company.
