How We Do It

Our workshops and performances activate youth to be the change in their community. We engage company members -- young women age 8-21 -- through a series of theater exercises, writing prompts, readings, and discussions. Performances raise awareness of domestic and global issues affecting women and girls. 

 

Some topics we’ve addressed include:

  • Identity (race, class, sexual orientation, ability)
  • Global Women’s Issues (Forced child marriage, sex trafficking, and more)
  • Body Image
  • Family Relationships
  • Popular Culture
  • Violence Against Women and Girls

 

 

Where We Do It

This work typically culminates in a theatrical production, and we have produced several critically-acclaimed shows in New York City, including sold-out performances at the New York International Fringe Festival and exclusive engagements at the United Nations, TEDxWomen and regional theaters.

 

The company and directors are available for day-long or weekend-long workshops for young women, as well as workshops with educators and community leaders working with youth.
