Ping Chong and Company
from New York, New York
Few Seats Left
They grew up in a global pandemic. They came into their own amidst renewed calls for racial justice. In their own words, Black, Latinx and Asian American teens bridge identities, cultures and lived experiences to share who they are and what they want in the world. From first MetroCards and going out, to canceled proms and coming out, young New Yorkers voice experiences of loss and isolation as well as new-found ways to connect, create and claim space during a year of crisis and transformation. Fresh, insightful and optimistic against all odds, they are Generation Rise.
Generation Rise was created by Ping Chong and Company in association with New 42/New Victory Theater developed in collaboration with Urban Word NYC
Ping Chong and Company uses theater to bring communities together. Through a wide variety of art forms, including puppetry, dance, oral history and documentary theater, they explore the idea of social responsibility through artistic innovation. The company broadens their audience’s understanding of identity by creating shows written by and starring people whose stories often go unheard.
