The Black Rock Civilian Defense Corps builds universal narratives that envelope the audience-participant in immersive alternate realities, largely with a science fiction bent. Our core crew consists of a motley bunch of theatre designers and educators, carpenters, mechanics, welders, game designers, programmers, filmmakers, and various other maker types.
We’ve also won three trophies at the 75th and 76th Annual Niland Tomato Festivals.
