breakthrough beat: We’re hitting the stage – “Yo Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide!”
What are your plans for the weekend?
Join Breakthrough from November 3-6th, for the play Yo Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide! at the popular Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Actor and writer Judith Sloan uses theater and music to remix stories from her extensive experience with immigrant/refugee teenagers and incarcerated youth. She interweaves their stories with her own, revealing the effects of the Holocaust on her family.
Following the Sunday, November 6th performance, join us for a discussion with Breakthrough’s president, Mallika Dutt, along with Queens City Council Member Julissa Ferreras, and Advocacy Director Jackie Vimo.
“‘Yo Miss!’ re-enacts and riffs on [Sloan's] experiences teaching teenagers from myriad worlds: refugee camps, struggling neighborhoods, prisons. It is a performance about performances, a story containing many stories.”
