Today at the BCA

Description

Access to Theatre Program, 2015 performances. Three people perform with colorful scarves in the middle of the Cyclorama.

The Access To Theatre Program (ATT) of Partners for Youth with Disabilities, in partnership with Boston Center for the Arts will again take up residence at the BCA this summer. During a two-week residency, ATT will work with an inclusive group of youth with and without disabilities to create an original production that will include improvisation, stories, dance/movement, visual art, and music to share with the public on Friday, July 29th, 2016, 1:00 pm and 6:00 pm.

Created by, with and for young people ages 13 to 24 with and without disabilities, ATT provides fully accessible participatory theater arts experiences, enabling youth to develop creative expression, self-esteem, friendship and leadership skills. Participants work with professional artists to stage and create original theater productions and interactive audience experiences.

Since partnering with the BCA in 1997, ATT has worked with hundreds of young people in annual original productions viewed by thousands of audience members. Through these programs, participants explore movement, dance, visual arts, music, spoken word and the countless combinations that can be created in artistic experiences. Young participants also gain self-esteem and life enhancing skills. Almost eight out of ten young participants report enhanced team-working skills and more than 9 out of ten of ATT youth report significant improvement in their comfort levels with meeting new people.

All events are free and open to the public as well as wheelchair accessible, ASL interpreted and Audio Described. Donations are accepted. After the performances, all guests are invited to enjoy Ben & Jerry’s Cream gathering with the cast after performances.
