Started in 1991, YOUTHWORKS is a unique yearly opportunity for young people (ages 7- 18) to imagine, create, and perform their own original performance work at BAX.
Year after year we are amazed at the journey these young artists go through from orientation to performance.
First, the young artists organize their ideas and figure out ways to get them out of their head and into a performance setting. The artists continue by finding form to their work, and wrap up by working on their performance skills and adding production elements like costumes and lighting. Professional artists work as coaches to guide these aspiring young artists through this 8-week creative process that begins in the BAX studios. These coaches volunteer their time and assist the young artists by giving feedback, asking questions and supporting these original works.
Past performances have included plays, dances, poetry in performance, original songs and a movie short. Pieces have been solos, group pieces and have even included a father/daughter collaboration!
The culminating performance is fully produced (with lights, sound and stage manager) and takes place in our theater space.
