empowHER Reading Series Live Stream: ‘Sharing My Voice Does Not Equal Vanity’

Theme 1 of the 2020 empowHER Reading Series: “SHARING MY VOICE DOES NOT EQUAL VANITY,” premiering Saturday, October 3 & encore Sunday, Oct. 4, features original one-acts and screenplays including:
ON THE VERGE
By Kate Bell; Directed by Raquel Almazan
Matt and Stevie are on tour, sharing their very un-douchey electronica performance art with America! Nothing can stop them – except for the snowstorm of the century and a lonely stranger’s desperation.
HOLY INAPPROPRIATE
By Allison Fradkin; Directed by Lee Douglass
In the Christian Patriarchy Movement, it is wholly appropriate for girls to be seen and not heard as they fulfill their life’s mission of submission. But what happens when these docile disciples come to the revolutionary realization that using their voices and making their own choices is not akin to the sin of vanity – or insanity?
SOMEONE
By Emma Goldman-Sherman; Directed by Lee Douglass
Have you thanked your mother today? No One does the dishes forever in this comic look at the never-ending cycle of the domestic labors of love.
HER PARTY
By Debora Peña; Directed by Aleesha Nash
Marianne has never been more proud of her daughter, Anne, a recently published academic at the beginning of what will certainly be a highly successful career. She has given her child everything, living vicariously through her achievements. When an unexpected guest arrives at the party, old wounds open and fears of being overshadowed yet again leave Marianne no choice but to speak her truth.
STEADFAST! Part 1
By Jane Willis; Directed by Vanessa Morosco
Washington is at a boiling point. Protesters have been labeled traitors by the President, and their lives are in danger. White and Black women struggle to navigate the deeply embedded racism that divides them from unity. Welcome to 1917 and the Suffragists’ fight for the Vote!

2020 Higher Ground Festival: “Howl”


Howl: Contemporary dance and spoken word. Double Take Dance (Ashley Carter & Vanessa Martinez de Baños) and Zara Lawler.

…”I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by wedding
planners, dieting, in shapewear,…” DoubleTake Dance presents a dance choreography to the spoken word performance of Zara Lawler. Choreographed by Vanessa Martínez de Baños
and Ashley Carter, and using text from the poem “Howl” by Amy Newman, dance and poetry come together to form a voice. In a collaborative project, they will be fusing various art forms as a means to explore the obscure and obvious ways in which girls/women are denied experiences, and are limited in
the world (or how they are viewed by the world). “Howl” explores the oppression outcasted women endure in a male-dominated, patriarchal culture, and the entrapments of their socio-gender. The artists will play with the juxtaposition of masculine/feminine, notions of androgyny, and the interplay of cadence with
movement.We are excited to announce the 2020 Higher Ground Festival will be happening from Oct. 3rd – Oct. 17th, virtually, in collaboration with Arts ON AIR livestream. The festival will be livestreamed on Arts ON AIR’s YouTube (Arts ON AIR) and Instagram (Arts ON AIR) as well as HGF’s Instagram (Higher Ground Festival), later to be posted on the HGF YouTube. It will be promoted on these platforms as well as Facebook Event Pages per each performance. Higher Ground Festival brings Northern Manhattan artists together to network and create interdisciplinary collaborations that are presented free to the community. This will be HGF’s 5th as a notable arts festival in the upper Manhattan community. Presently all performances are slated for 5:30pm EST start time, however the time may adjust to 5:00pm as the days become shorter.
