REBEL VERSES is a two-week festival of performances by some of the best youth companies in NYC and beyond. With a mission to nurture the unapologetic, unrestrained creativity of the next generation, REBEL VERSES provides an opportunity for young artists ages 13-19 to perform their own original work and to collaborate and network with their peers and prominent guest artists. Founded 16 years ago by Developing Artists, and co-produced by Vineyard Theatre since 2017, REBEL VERSES celebrates the work these young artists create in an environment that champions the legitimacy of all stories and backgrounds.
The Summer 2019 REBEL VERSES Youth Arts Festival was hosted at the Vineyard Theatre from Aug. 8-10 & 15-17.
