Every BIP’s member, as writers, actors, choreographers, poets, filmmakers and producers, are conscious of the responsibility that the artists have to bring messages to improve the society as well as the importance to maintain and preserve our Latin culture in this melting pot. Barrio Independent Productions’ (BIP) also provide a platform for storytelling performances and opportunities for other artists to gain exposure and engage more audiences for their artistic works.
While from the beginning, BIP operated as BeautifulAngel Productions, producing “De aquí y de allá” at Julia de Burgos Theater and “La Patria Resiste” at El Barrios’s Artspace PS109. In both projects the donations received at the entrance were designated to help artists in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. Also the collective have developed other projects as Acting Classes for NYC communities & Talent Shows for senior citizens (with Acacia Network) ; including the production, and filming and editing of various short films for those old adults communities.
During the productions of such events BIP was formed and in 2019 Frenzy Fest was the first production as BIP.
