After School Activities

After School Activities is a weekly forum for spontaneous musical creation in Jersey City. Every Wednesday night, musicians, dancers, poets, rappers, and performance artists come together to create music and poetry on stage and on the spot. Each week is themed by either content or form, or is led by a curated musical leader. The task of every participating artist is to support the expression of the other artists. We prioritize joint creation over performance.

After School was created in March 2016 by Alex Pergament, based on the “Yes, And” philosophy of long-form theater improvisation.
