Inside the Lives of NYC’s Subway Dancers

“We Live This,” a documentary short by filmmaker James Burns, follows the daily hustle of young NYC subway performers whose group goes by the same name. The crew, which consists of young men (including Forty and brothers Tyty and Kahlil) opens up about their lives at home and how dancing on the subway doubles as a way to survive and an outlet for expression. “I’m begging without words. I’m begging with a smile,” says Forty. Watch the full 10-minute video at The Atlantic.
