Quote from AOYT AD Anthony Kinahan:
“We are so glad to be finally back on the live stage (where we belong) & to be presenting these unique pieces to an actual audience. We are proud to say our weekly workshops & other projects, continued to operate consistently over the period of the lockdowns, as vital opportunities for connection & expression for our young people … but it wasn’t easy for them at times when they weren’t able to meet in-person. We have waited patiently to be able to present a live performance again & we can’t wait to unleash “deLIBERATIONs” on the world.”
