"Beauty Beneath the Surface" a new viBeStages play

  • HERE Arts Center 145 6th Avenue New York, NY, 10012 United States

viBe Theater Experience is proud to present an original play that invites a discussion about freedom and acceptance, teenage angst, struggle, and, post-election 2016, the difference between our expectations and reality.

Written and performed by the young women from viBe's Fall 2016 viBeStages program. Directed by Monique Letamendi and Ian Fields Stewart.

About viBeStages viBe provides underserved girls (ages 13-19) with free artistic, leadership and academic opportunities. We arm participants with tools to communicate their ideas in performance and equip them with academic and life skills in an accepting creative space. Our curriculum challenges girls with challenging, fulfilling opportunities in writing, producing and performing their own plays. Each Summer, Fall, and Spring, an ensemble of diverse teenage girls write and perform one narrative-based play with songs and dances performed in professional theater venues in Manhattan. Our professional teaching artists inspire girls to create stories, monologues, scenes, dances and songs about their collective and individual passion, struggles, hopes and dreams.
