At Brooklyn Acts we offer a space for creativity to flourish and be channeled into all avenues of the performing arts. From Shakespeare to song, we encourage our members to stretch themselves creatively, in order to provide a needed outlet, increase confidence, and foster a community of like-minded youth.
Our members have created original pieces of theater based on improvisational exercises from Augusto Boal's 'Theatre of the Oppressed' addressing relevant issues of bullying and racism in the community. These short plays both entertain as well as foster dialogue within the community about issues for youth as well as issues at large.

Currently, Brooklyn Acts is launching into an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, incorporating Shakespearean and modern language, as well as original dance choreography, soundtrack, song, and spoken word. Look out for us onstage in the spring!
Brooklyn Acts has an original song! Developed collaboratively over our summer session, members created a three verse song addressing the changes happening in Bushwick, and the influence of Brooklyn Acts as a positive, creative force of change. You'll have to hear it to believe it! Check it out on Soundcloud at: https://soundcloud.com/brooklynacts/our-changing-streets and download on iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/our-changing-streets-single/id709480159 . Stay tuned for our accompanying music video out late this fall!
Brooklyn Acts performs original works in schools, local businesses, for community functions, and more! Brooklyn Acts aspires to inspire, and to raise important questions and dialogues for youth and adults through art and the bringing together of communities.
