I'm thrilled to invite you to Virago Ensemble's event Through Our Eyes: A Collection of All that We Are. It will be on Friday, 5/25 at 7:30-10:00 at the Artist Co-op. This event is all about women's perspective and will be showcasing works in theater, music, visual art and spoken word created by female-identifying artists. At the last 30 minutes of the event we will invite female-identifying artists present at the event as audience members to share their own work. I'm very excited about this evening and would love to have you there with us! Tickets are pay what you can at the door.

Some more details about the event:
We will open the evening with the short play Kiss that Frog by Serena Cates. It was inspired by the social media trend of young adults writing lists about everyone they have kissed. This “Kissed List” hunch has opened the door to themes such as love vs. lust, sexual assault, drugs and alcohol, sexuality, secrecy and much more. The resulting script investigates the relationship millennial girls have with kissing, relationships, sex, and sexuality in general.

Directed by Angelita Esperanza Featuring: Amanda Erixon, Angelita Esperanza, Deborah Amaa, Eliya Rodeh , Kanja Grobler, Noy Marom, Rosemary Tross, Samia Omari

After the play we will have special guests showcasing their work:

The Palm Cabaret

The Palm Cabaret is a bi-monthly theatrical experience produced and directed by Sara Plunkett that showcases the exceptional talents of New York City in an intimate setting. 

Palm leaves have been said to represent victory, triumph, and a sense of peacefulness. It is my goal as the director and producer of The Palm Cabaret to bring those feelings to life in a genuine environment that provide an escape from the stress of this amazing city we call home. My hope for the evening is that both cast members and audience alike leave with that same feeling of invigoration and the renewed sense of hopefulness that are so beautifully represented by the palm leaf. 

A ticket for the evening cost $20, which includes two complimentary glasses of wine and an amazing show filled with beautifully talented performers. 

The cast for The Palm Cabaret: Love Me Tinder includes:

Taylor Scott
Ari Axelrod
Maia Diaz
Sean O’Shea

In Her Shoes (show by Infinite Variety Productions)

Over 50 years ago, thousands of young American women went to Vietnam to serve their country during the war. Infinite Variety Productions interviewed five of these women- two military officers, three civilian employees, all volunteers. Hearing their poignant, horrific, funny, and endearing memories, we set out to tell the often unknown, but extremely timely story showing the human side of war. Through a script created directly from the oral histories with an innovative set using five blocks evolving into bunkers, rooftops, military vehicles and more, join IVP as we journey through the lives of these women.

 

All the proceeds from the event will go to WOSL- Women’s Overseas Service League – a national organization for women who have served overseas in or with the Armed Forces. 

 

Post show there will be a talk back with Judy Jenkins Gaudino.

Ms.Jenkins Gaudino served in Vietnam for 3 years in the army special services.
