We are excited to announce Generation Rise: On Demand through New Victory Theater! This virtual production is available to stream for $15 through June 2022 at NewVictory.org

Generation Rise is an interview-based virtual production featuring Black, Latinx, and Asian American teens from New York City telling their own stories and reflecting on their lives before, during and after 2020—a year of crisis and transformation. It shares real-life stories of six New York City teenagers and the significance of a year of growing up during a global pandemic and renewed calls for racial justice.

Part of the Undesirable Elements series and written and directed by Sara Zatz and Kirya Traber, Generation Rise originated as a virtual theater production in partnership with Urban Word NYC in June 2021. The live production of the show premiered at New Victory Theater in November 2021.
