BROOKLYN GYPSIES is an eclectic artist collective made up of New Yorkers both native and immigrant to the city and led in part by Modesto "Flako" Jimenez. They present annual showcases of new work in theater, dance, poetry and film that spark dialogues on critical issues of immigration, economics, and urban survival. They curate a mix of established and emerging artists and give them a platform to explore complex issues in a stimulating environment. Their previous show, Conversation: How to Make it in Black America, Pt. 1, premiered at JACK in July 2015.
