Continuum @ PS 189
In 2018 Continuum will continue its relationship with PS 189 in Brooklyn with workshops and performances (Schedule TBA).
PS 189 is one of our favorite schools–located at the border of East Flatbush and Brownsville, 70% of the student body, and much of the faculty, are Haitian-American or recent Haitian immigrants. The staff is incredibly loving, supportive, and involved in the students’ lives and offers classes in the Haitian Kreyol language. Everyone from students to janitors, to social workers and the Principal at PS 189 has been incredibly enthusiastic and receptive to our drum workshops since we first worked there in 2014.
Here is video of our DRUM/BRIDGE performance at PS 189 in 2016: https://youtu.be/Dka7il0v61M
DRUM/BRIDGE @ PS 189. L-R: Jason Kao Hwang (violin–obscured), Melanie Dyer (viola), Brandon Seabrook (guitar), JD Parran (clarinet), Briggan Krauss (alto saxophone), Ingrid Laubrock (tenor saxophone), Frank Lacy (trombone–obscured)
