"Breaking Together" - Bronx Prep's First-Ever Experimental Drama

Student-devised, student-directed... a show that started with a single pop song, broken apart lyrically and reconfigured into three original performance pieces-- an original scene, an art exhibit and a series of tableaux-- presented throughout the school with the audience being led around by face-painted tour guides, and culminating in a rousing dance-number finale. Weird, challenging, and wonderful.

Performers broke apart the lyrics of "The Dog Days are Over" by Florence and the Machine and reinterpreted them in tableaux form to create a haunting visual performance.
