While We Are Young, devised and directed by The Makers’ Ensemble, is about youth; it’s about like and love and all of their multiple relationships to relationships. Long days. Smoke breaks. Late nights. Youngsters working jobs nobody feels like working. Too many drinks after work. Too many hits out back. Too many broken promises in the morning. First Impressions. First loves. First time seeing your life flash before your eyes. Do we ever get a step ahead? Will we ever stop crying? Will we ever stop laughing? When are we going to start living, like for real, for real? Why not, while we are young?
The Makers’ Ensemble is an evolving grassroots ensemble of emerging artists showcasing new, original, and classical works of theater, and focused on telling stories that create bridges between the art and the audience and ignite engaging conversations among intersectional communities. This nomadic ensemble was intentionally formed by artists of various backgrounds, predominantly people of color. From previous undergraduate collaborators to newly-formed partnerships, this group was selected based on the principle of creating a space that is both radical in performance and radical in artistic practice.
