Drawing connections from Willie Lynch to Trayvon Martin, sourcing interviews with formerly incarcerated youth, and citing research from New York City's key lawyers in the Stop and Frisk trials, BAR CODE interrogates cycles of systemic oppression through a compelling narrative that weaves rhyme, multimedia, hip-hop theatre, dance, and personal testimony.

Truthworker Theatre Company is a free social justice-based hip-hop performance program for high school and college-aged youth in Brooklyn.  We are intent upon providing free programming and professional stipends for young visionaries & performers to receive rigorous training. TTC is a safe space for young people to be the subjects, not the objects of their stories-narrating their own experiences & unique perspectives in ways that unpack, problematize, & shift the dominant, often stereotypical narratives in mainstream media. Using theatre & media to examine history & learn about models for creating social change, we call upon language & critical thinking skills as tools to develop solution driven citizens of the world.

Type: No type specified.

Location: No location specified.
