Drs. Jones and Bernazky (BFA, PhD, WTF) are seeking participants in a theatrical research study. “Lab rats” are invited to join them on an immersive, experimental journey of delight and surprise.

Bernazky and Jones have turned the conventions of theater on its head to create a space of heightened awareness and utter uncertainty. Who is the audience? Who is the performer? What’s with the lab coats? All that is certain is this: from the moment you walk in, all bets are off.

Every show is different. Every show is an experiment. It’s an exciting fusion of improvisation, participatory theater and social experiment that takes audience members on a roller coaster ride of terror, hilarity and enchantment. We Might Be Experimenting On You isn’t for the faint of heart or the high of heel – it’s for everyone searching for the kind of joy that can’t be found sitting in your seat.


Kym Bernazky (performer) earned her BFA in Drama from New York University studying acting at Circle In The Square Theater School.

Their work has been seen/produced at Theatre For the New City, Chernuchin, Todo Con Nada, Collective Unconscious, The Kraine Theatre, The Pure Pop, New York and Orlando Fringe Festivals. Their film work has been screened online, at several film festivals including the New York Independent Film Festival, and in a documentary about pie throwing.
Six Characters Cometh earned the group the "Best Ensemble Of The Year" Award from the Off-Off Broadway Review in 2002. Six Characters: Best Show Ever! earned a glowing review from the New York Times.

"...I was so engaged throughout, and so happy afterwards that I would recommend this show to anyone who’s got a little spirit of adventure...."

"I was bonding with an audience of strangers, I was riding each new “experiment” pleased to be in the laboratory ushered along by the affable Bernazky and Jones...."
