Alternate Title School-Time / BAMkids Performance: Paige in Full: A B-Girl's Visual Mixtape
Production Language English
Country of Origin United States
Description Grades 8-12. How can we know who we are if we're changing all the time? Performer, writer, and choreographer Paige Hernandez answers a universal question in her own unique way in this moving and funny coming-of-age story. From her mixed African-American, Chinese, and Cuban heritage, to her upbringing in Baltimore in the 1980s and 90s, Hernandez's life is the foundation of this mash-up solo performance -- a vibrant meditation on the politics of identity in a multicultural world told through spoken word and dance and set to infectious hip-hop beats by Brooklyn's own DJ Reborn. Included with ticket: pre-show classroom workshop with a BAM teaching artist, study guide, post-show discussion and Q&A.
BAMkids performance is Friday March 14 @ 7:30.
