The #BARS Workshop is a lab series created by artists Rafael Casal & Daveed Diggs, to serve as a space for artists to investigate the intersection between contemporary verse and Theater. The first session of #BARS concluded in June 2016, punctuated by the release of the first installment of a video series called the #BARS MIXTAPE MUSICAL MEDLEY, which received high praise from ELLE, TIME, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, TEEN VOGUE, SLATE & more! Casal & Diggs then teamed up with New York’s The Public Theater to present SESSION 2 of the #BARS workshop, which began July 18th and ended with the filming of the #BARS MEDLEY VOL. 2, which took the artistry to a whole new level, and shot across the internet via spotlights from NPR, Broadway.com, Huffinton Post, Time Out New York, Playbill etc. Now, in June of 2018, we are happy to announce that we are entering into our FOURTH season of BARS at the Public Theater with BARS WORKSHOP VOL. 4!
DEADLINE IS JUNE 8TH @ MIDNIGHT ET
