The North Carolina A&T State University Department of Visual & Performing Arts presents Breath, Boom by Kia Corthron. The hard-hitting, in-your-face play chronicles the cycle of violence, and abuse that leads girls in the mean streets of the Bronx to join gangs. Prix, played by A&T actor Brittany Timmons, struggles to come to terms with her own inner demons during her 14 years as girl gang leader. In the powerful scene from Breath, Boom that we’re about to hear, Brittany is joined by A&T actor Mia Sims who plays Cat—a young girl vying to join Prix’s gang—and rapper/actor Allison Wilson who narrates with an original rap written for the play by A&T’s Kirk Hill. Warning: the following scene and music depict acts of gang violence.
