Access to Theatre
July 17 - July 22, 2011
Access to Theatre (ATT) will again take up residence at the Boston Center for the Arts this summer. During a weeklong residency, ATT will work with youth to create an interactive experience of drama improvisation and movement to share with the public on Friday, July 22 at 7:30pm.
Created by, with and for young people aged 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 over 800 young people in 46 original productions for 30,000 audience members. Through these programs, participants explore movement, dance, music, spoken word and the countless combinations that can be created in artistic experiences.
The ATT residency will run from Sunday, July 17th to Friday, July 22nd and will culminate in a performance of an original work on Friday, July 22nd at 7:30 pm in the Cyclorama at the BCA. All events are free and open to the public as well as wheelchair accessible, ASL interpreted and Audio Described. Donations are accepted.
