Concrete Kids is an exploration of love and loss, melody and bloodshed. Musician, playwright, and educator Amyra Leon takes us on a poetic journey through her childhood in Harlem, as she navigates the intricacies of foster care, mourning, self-love, and resilience. In her signature free-verse style, she invites us all to dream with abandon – and to recognise the privilege it is to dream at all.
