The DAYPC self-conceived productions are a trademark combination of hip hop, modern and aerial dance, theater, spoken word, rap and song.  This production will also feature guest appearances from the Destiny Arts Youth Martial Arts Team and the Destiny Junior Company.

"FREE" explores what it means to be free in all the senses of the word. And what it means NOT to be free. The show opens with a tableau of dancers and actors scattered between discarded furniture and other household items left on the side of the road with handwritten signs taped to them marked "FREE".

The young artists dig deep into intimate personal issues that affect them and their communities from being pressured to have sex and use drugs to how they feel about stereotypes that limit them in boxes of race, gender, sexual orientation and body shape.

The DAYPC then uses the lens of the personal to explore social and political issues from climate change to the plight of the public educational system. They address typical teenage issues of searching for meaning and belonging and make them ageless and universal by connecting them to global issues that affect us all.

WARNING:  There is some sensitive material in the show this year involving stereotypes, name-calling and childhood sexual abuse.  The subject matter is dealt with in a very delicate manner, but may NOT be appropriate for youth under 10.  Please call Destiny Arts Center if you have questions or concerns.
