Project Girl Performance Collective creates a fearless space for girls to write and perform their own work.
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.
