Supporting creative work by women
New Georges, the bold and brave company two decades in the making, is hosting Wintry Mix, a weeklong series of new work and work-in-progress casually curated by the company and lightly produced by the artists themselves. From December 16 through 20, you can experience Crystal Skillman’s latest work–OPEN– or a reading of Nurse Nora Menorah Saves Christmas or Winter Miller‘s benefit Rape Aid: Friends Don’t Let Friends Rape, with proceeds supporting the great work of Safe Horizon.
Susan Bernfield, New Georges Artistic Director, raves, “We’re so happy so many of our favorite artists took us up on our offer of space at the New Ohio this December! It’s a big fat casual opportunity to show off some really tremendous work and, with Rape Aid, to do some good, too.
Here is more info about Wintry Mix, direct from New Georges website. Enjoy this wonderful week of new work by amazing women artists.
And a delightful mix it is! Here’s the schedule… come on down!
All tix 15 bucks, click through right here – except RAPE AID, which is $20 (hey, it’s a benefit! You can make a donation at that link, too!) and NURSE NORA MENORAH, who’s happy to save Xmas for pay-what-you-will at the door!
