V-Day Halifax 2018

PRESENTS A BENEFIT PRODUCTION OF THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES

Join Us As We Celebrate The 20th Anniversary of The Vagina Monologues & the Founding of V-Day, the Global Activist Movement to End Violence Against Women and Girls

On February 16 and 17, 2018, the Bella Rose Arts Centre will present a three show only production of Eve Ensler’s award winning play The Vagina Monologues.

Over the past two decades, tens of thousands of communities and college campuses have staged V-Day benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues – and other artistic works, campaigns & Risings– in over 200 countries and territories. V-Day activists have raised consciousness, changed laws to protect women and girls, funded rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters (often times these much needed funds kept them from closing), educated their communities, and raised well over $100 million in urgently needed funds for groups doing the essential work of ending violence and serving survivors and their families.

For its 20th anniversary, V-Day is calling on activists around the world to Rise, Resist and Unite. Welcome to V-Season 2018.

What are The Vagina Monologues

The New York Times called The Vagina Monologues, “probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade." The play - first performed Off-Broadway and in locations around the world by Ms. Ensler - dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement in women’s experiences.  V-Day grew out of the play which exploded onto the scene in 1998, breaking taboos about women’s sexuality and shattering silence around violence done to women and girls.  


The Vagina Monologues will be performed at The Bella Rose Arts Centre, located at 283 Thomas Raddall Drive. Performance take place on February 16 and 17, 2018 at 8:00PM on the Friday and Saturday with an additional matinee performance at 3:00PM on Saturday.   Tickets are $10 plus applicable fees and taxes for adults and $7 plus applicable fees and taxes Students/Artists/Under waged and may be purchased by visiting www.bellaroseartscentre.com or calling Ticket Halifax at 902 422 6278 ext. 500

About V-Day
Over these past two decades V-Day has had an improbable journey, charting a path that has been unparalleled - tens of thousands of communities and college campuses have staged benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues – and other works and campaigns created by V-Day – in over 200 countries and territories. V-Day activists have raised consciousness, changed laws to protect women and girls, funded rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters (often times these much needed funds kept them from closing), educated their communities, and raised well over $100 million in urgently needed funds for groups doing the essential work of ending violence and serving survivors and their families.  From the Congo, where V-Day supports the City of Joy, a leadership center for survivors of violence where women can heal themselves, to One Billion Rising, the largest mass action to stop violence against women in history, to its work with a broad coalition of groups advocating for an end to workplace violence for women, including nurses, hotel workers, farm workers, restaurant workers and more, V-Day has its pulse on issues women face across the globe.

V-Day Halifax is a local effort within the worldwide context of the 20th Anniversary V-Day Campaign.
