Welcome to the MCC Brooklyn Youth Company’s virtual production of BKYC UNCENSORED: A Meeting of Minds – a series of theatrical musings on a year in isolation.
In this work, each actor explores their own mind to address those introspective, hard-to-answer questions inspired by self-examination such as: Who am I? What is important? Who is in charge of all this? The ensemble also strove to embrace the benefits of working in Zoom while pushing the boundaries of this interface to sustain the MCC tradition of facilitating collaborative, freely creative, and diverse theatre-making for young people.
Working with these courageous, shockingly insightful young artists and thinkers was a true privilege. They always wind up educating me!
Enjoy the show,
Brooklyn Youth Company Director
