About this Event

Interrupting Bigotry

Facilitated by José Joaquín García

Part of our ARTISTS ACTIVATED series of workshops and events.

6:30 performance | 7:30 workshop | 8:00 – 8:30 pm community discussion

Drawing on BAX’s long-standing “Interrupting Bigotry” family engagement program with Arts Partner, the Brooklyn New School (BNS), participants of all ages are invited to come together under BAX Teaching Artist Josés Joaquín García’s direction to experiment with ways of interrupting racism and bigotry. Using the Brazilian theatre artist Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed, José as the “Joker” will invite audience members to help these students conceive of different ways to interrupt and redirect those experiences, empowering these young people and themselves. This interactive performance is open to all ages.

The BNS/BAX partnership receives support from the NYC Department of Education.

All tickets are pay-what-you-can general admission.

Please select the amount that sincerely works best for your family, keeping in mind that these funds go directly to facilitator fees and support BAX’s ongoing investment in such community resources.

There is an additional ticket category for the families and friends of the BNS students who are participating.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Unaccompanied children (over 8) must be picked up promptly at 8:30 pm.
