Our theme was SELF…FAMILY…COMMUNITY…WORLD…UNIVERSE. Each field trip was focused on one aspect of our theme:
Self was a one-woman autobiographical show, Running Into Me, performed by Vickie Tanner.
Family was a BYC family field trip to Gazillion Bubble Show.
Community was the Contemporary Arts exhibit at Brooklyn Museum.
World was Fela! Broadway musical about Nigerian musician/activist Fela Kuti.
Universe was Journey to the Stars at Hayden Planetarium.
In our original script, a teenage girl on the wrong path gets knocked unconscious in a fight. While she is out, she has visions of a mother struggling to protect her child, Fela Kuti fighting against police brutality and dreams of outer space. When she awakes, she realizes the changes she needs to make in her life. Was it reality or was it all a DREAM?
