Poetic License 2019: RESILIENCE

  • Wild Project 195 East 3rd Street New York, NY, 10009 United States (map)

Poetic Theater Productions is proud to announce our 8th Annual Poetic License festival to be presented March 15-17, 2019 at the Wild Project (195 E 3rd St). The theme for Poetic License 2019 is RESILIENCE.

Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress, a coherent sense of self that one is able to maintain through these circumstances. How do we cope with this ever-present onslaught and bounce back to create art and the world in which we want to exist?

The festival will include our annual showcases Generation Now!, Poetic Lyricism, Veteran Voices, and Breaking Our Silence, as well as special programming.

Generation Now
The 7th annual Generation NOW! will feature youth from arts organizations across NYC. Previous Generation NOW! Past participating organizations have included Urban Word NYC, Girl Be Heard, viBe Theater Experience, EarSay Youth Voices, and Girls Write Now. .
