Try/Step/Trip Produced by Youth Speaks & Ictus in association with ACTs Artshare
Performed by Dahlak Brathwaite and Jasmine Gatewood.
Try/Step/Trip began as an adaptation of Dahlak Brathwaites Spiritrials - a semi-autobiographical tale reflecting on the criminal justice system through the purview of a court ordered drug rehabilitation program. As Try/Step/Trip continues to develop, it emerges as a stand-alone work, a new perspective on Brathwaites experience, rich with Step choreography and musical numbers. During Try/Step/Trips ARTSHARE residency, Brathwaite, along with cast member Jasmine Gatewood, will be finalizing certain musical numbers from Try/Step/Trip and then performing them within excerpts of Spiritrials, to give audience members a view of how the two pieces are connected, where the work started, and what Try/Step/Trip is becoming.
