Part of the American (in)Tent Reach In Don’t Outreach program promoting the voice of youth, cuz the kids are alright. Directed and performed by youth artists, this program advocates cultural commonality out of current issues that deeply afflict younger generations.
Center Theatre Group has been talking about new ways to inspire conversation and build community around art—and what that can look like while our stages are dark. We believe this can also be a powerful time of reflection, reimagining, and innovation around how we bring our artists, audiences, and community together. That’s why we’re sharing a new series of videos from members of the Center Theatre Group family. We asked them to speak to what theatre means to them right now and to share some of their favorite pieces of art. Art goes on. And so do we. In this episode of the “Art Goes On Project,” Kyle Branch performs the monologue from “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” that he earned him first in the 2020 August Monologue Competition Los Angeles Regional Finals at the Mark Taper Forum.
