28-01-2012 12:00:00 29-01-2012 12:00:00 America/New_York YOUTHWORKS Performance | 7pm Saturday | 5pm Sunday Started in 1991, YOUTHWORKS is a yearly opportunity for young people (ages 7- 18) to imagine, create, and perform their own original performance work at BAX. Year after year we are amazed at the 8-week journey these young artists go through from orientation to performance. Young artists come in from all over the City, most with nothing more than the desire to create "something," and set themselves to work. Professional artists volunteer their time to coach young artists through the creative process as they create anything from plays, dances, poetry in performance, and original songs. Pieces have been solos, group pieces and have even included a father/daughter collaboration! Participants have an opportunity to collaborate in the technical aspects of their performance and experience a technical rehearsal (many for the first time) with our in-house professional technical director. The culminating performance is fully produced (with lights, sound and stage manager) and takes place in our theater space. This unique program is FREE for self directed young artists committed to creating original work. YOUTHWORKS director, Donna Costello, assisted by the festivals intern, Dominique Fluker, leads the orientation workshop, recruits the coaches, coordinates rehearsals and produces the performance. Costello guides the process and assists in the interchange between artists and coaches with an inquiry-based practice.
