Created in collaboration with 651 ARTS, Brooklyn '63 features Brooklyn-based activists, witnesses and those who have inherited the legacy of a generation of civic action. The piece features Brooklyn residents who share their experiences and perspectives from the early labor movement, the Ocean Hill-Brownsville Teachers Strike, the Downstate Medical Center protests led by Brooklyn CORE, the history of The East in Bedford-Stuyvesant, and a host of events and reminiscences that took place in Brownsville, Ft. Greene, Sheepshead Bay, Coney Island, Williamsburg, Bushwick, and many places in between. Originally premiered at The Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts at Long Island University in May 2013, Brooklyn '63 was also presented in three locations in Brooklyn as part of The BEAT Festival in September 2013.
