Join Working Theater for an evening of performances focused on the ways in which Bushwick artists use their art to "uplift the community."
Thursday, March 30th, 2017
at RBSCC's 10 Forrest Community Room, Bushwick, Brooklyn
6 PM - 9 PM
Free, and open to all.
RBSCC & our creative community partner, Working Theater, invite the Bushwick community to showcase their performance skills. Featuring community members and experienced artists alike, all are welcome at this inclusive and exploratory event.
Working Theater presents the Off-Broadway world premiere of Bamboo in Bushwick.
Working Theater describes the play in this way:
"Bushwick was called home by locals long before any magazine called it hip. Bamboo in Bushwick explores gentrification in this suddenly trendy neighborhood from divergent angles.
As a group of old friends gather for a round of dominoes, outside forces converge on their street corner. In an alternate reality, inspired by the psychedelic murals that have taken over many walls in the neighborhood, a turf war breaks out on the icy tundra. Is there room in Brooklyn for both penguins and polar bears?
When your community is threatened, every block is worth fighting for.
Bamboo in Bushwick is part of Working Theater's Five Boroughs/One City Initiative. The play was developed in partnership with Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council (RBSCC), and through conversations with their members and members of Bushwick Salvation Army Community Center, El Puente Bushwick, Make the Road New York and the general Bushwick community."
