About the INTERGENERATIONAL PROJECT

In the 2013 season, Girl Be Heard will collaborate with Antiquity Now (www.antiquitynow.net) to produce and perform in New York City a full production, tentatively called Generations, consisting of a series of monologues, scenes, stories and songs incorporating the personal stories of modern and ancient women (scheduled for May 2014). The mission of Antiquity Now is to raise awareness of the importance of preserving our cultural heritage by demonstrating how antiquity’s legacy influences and shapes our lives today and for generations to come. AntiquityNOW carries out its mission through public engagement, educational programs and advocacy on behalf of our collective world heritage. Generations will allow our company members to work closely with partners, historians and anthropologists at AntiquityNOW, gaining insight into women’s history and connecting their own stories with those of their foremothers.
