About the Event
Three artists, five minutes to rehearse, one take. This is TakeOne. In advance of filming each video, a group of past YoungArts winners are sent key information: a song or script, and a place, date and time to meet. Communicating with one another beforehand is off limits. Once shoot day arrives, the artists get a short amount of time to discuss, then mics are hot and cameras are rolling for the first—and only—take, TakeOne.
Featuring Jay Jackson (Laganja Estranja) (2007 Dance & U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts), Sophia Koo (2023 Dance), and Juliette Martinez (2017 Dance). Co-directed by Grace Weber (2006 Theater, Voice & U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts) and Teddy Alvarez-Nissen (2020 Film). TakeOne premieres Thursday, October 26 at 9 PM ET on YouTube.
