Brooklyn Arts Exchange (BAX)

421 5th Avenue

Brooklyn, NY 11215

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 José 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 5th grade 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.
