Artwork Needed for V-Day 2012 Auction


We are reading a different set of monologues for 2012 but working for the same important cause, to end violence against women and girls everywhere:


A groundbreaking collection of monologues by world-renowned authors and playwrights, edited by Eve Ensler and Mollie Doyle and commissioned by V-Day for the first V-Day: UNTIL THE VIOLENCE STOPS festival, which took place June 2006 in New York City.

Beyond the time constraint of five minutes or less and the theme of women and violence, each monologue was for the writer to realize. No constructs, restrictions, or rules. A fantasy of a world where there is no violence. A poem about the physics of a slap. A memory.

These writings are inspired, funny, angry, heartfelt, tragic, and beautiful. Together they create a true and profound portrait of how violence against women affects every one of us. A MEMORY, A MONOLOGUE, A RANT, AND A PRAYER is a call to the world to demand an end to violence against women.

Contributing writers include: Edward Albee; Tariq Ali; Hanan al-Shaykh; Erin Cressida Wilson; Kimberlé Crenshaw; Michael Cunningham; Ariel Dorfman; Edwidge Danticat; Michael Eric Dyson; Eve Ensler; Jane Fonda; Carol Gilligan; Suheir Hammad; Carol Kaplan; Michael Klein; Deborah Copaken Kagan; Nicholas Kristof; Mark Matousek; Susan Miller; Susan Minot; Robin Morgan; Kathy Najimy; Lynn Nottage; Anna Deavere Smith; Alice Walker; Jody Williams; Howard Zinn Attached is the auction donation information form.

Please note: paperwork from the artists should be submitted by Monday Feb. 27, 2012 for program purposes, but they do not need the actual donation until auction set up on Thursday March 22nd at Banana Factory. Paperwork was emailed to Chen Members, if you did not receive it and or have questions, please contact: Angela Sinkler
