New Special Performance Explores Reproductive Freedom Then And Now

A powerful new theatrical performance explores how Gen Z and past generations connect in ReGeneration: Our Reproductive Freedom Then and Now.

ReGeneration: Our Reproductive Freedom Then and Now will be presented virtually on August 26 at 7 pm ET on Zoom.

This engaging live performance is a mosaic of nine monologues on Reproductive Freedom and Social Justice, created from the interviews of six Gen Zers, 16 to 23, with six people who have written and advocated in decades past.

People in both generations use their theatrical imaginations to create monologues for this fresh theatrical look at the universal dreams, hopes and struggles for reproductive freedom, justice and human rights then and now.

What is the same? What has changed?

Topics addressed in the performance include abortion, contraception, reproductive justice, faith-based progressive ideals, 'period' activism, immigrant dignity, racial trauma, radical self-care and passing the torch. The theme highlights the search for liberty and freedom for all persons.

The ReGeneration workshop process was guided by Creativity Consultants and theater professionals Alinca Hamilton, directing, and Stacey Linnartz, coaching.

The performance cast includes guest artists Dawn Elizabeth Clements, Julissa Roman and Jaye Austin Williams, in addition to ReGeneration participants.
