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.
To celebrate all of the New Victory LabWorks we’ve received, we’re highlighting five alumni companies who are making waves in New York City (and beyond!).
LabWorks encourages NYC artists to create imaginative work for young audiences. Laura Been and Li Kennedy answer some questions about the program!
Their piece of puppet theater celebrates the humpback whale’s return to New York City waters after pollution drove the species away for many years.
