Come Together with New Victory Arts Break: Creating with LabWorks Artists

All communities share one thing: they bring people together! By sharing and exchanging ideas, communities grow from having something in common—where people live, what they like, or how they see the world. For the next two months, New Victory Arts Break will introduce you to a community of theatermakers creating adventurous new work for families: New Victory LabWorks.

New Victory Arts Break: Creating with LabWorks Artists

Comprising a range of New York artists across all disciplines, New Victory LabWorks offers individualized support for artists who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), including those who identify as LGBTQIA+, and those who identify as disabled, to help them develop new work and diversify the field of performing arts for young audiences and the productions seen on stages across the nation.

Dive into the art-making process with LabWorks Artists and TAs!

The current roster includes nicHi douglas, ChelseaDee Harrison, Nambi E. Kelley and Christopher Rudd—four artists as different in their creative expression as they are alike in wanting to share their stories with young audiences. From sonic drama to modern dance, discover more about their LabWorks projects as you play alongside New Victory Teaching Artists and New Victory Ushers to create original works of your own.

A hallmark of New Victory LabWorks is the opportunity for artists to hold open rehearsals for New Victory families. As we prepare to make those opportunities available to New Yorkers again soon, New Victory Arts Break offers a sneak peek at how these artists inspire creativity and community wherever they are, so you can create art no matter where you are.
