Mia as Titania: Hunts Point Bronx

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

Every year a group of children from HPAC perform a Shakespeare play, this year its A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The two performances will be this Saturday and Sunday. I spend lots of time in Hunts Point documenting the struggles of the neighborhood, so seeing these children and the hope they represent is especially satisfying. It is a true thing of beauty.

Mia, here dressed as Titania, wants to grow up to be a fashion designer. I asked Mia what she learned from spending the year preparing and she said “Everybody has a charchater inside of them, a character that can express many things.” When I asked her about Hunts Point she said “Its good and bad. Lots of people litter, curse, and do drugs. Thats bad. There are so many different cultures you can explore. I like that.” When I asked how she wanted to be described, she said “Unique.”

Twelfth Night Actors: Hunts Point Bronx

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

I been working with this nonprofit Hunts Point Alliance for Children. The children (12 -14 years of age) are going to perform Twelfth Night tonight in Bronx and tomorrow in Manhattan… Do you mind posting the link to the play? They have been working really hard and the money goes to a great charity.

Done!
