68 WOMEN EMPOWERING PROJECTS
SEPTEMBER 19 - OCTOBER 13
Iteration: The Finger by Doruntina Basha (Kosovo)
The Finger draws its impetus from a vacuum, from a family bereft, and the implacable dynamics between two women. In it, a disappearance calls for-and exacts-rituals in the gap between life and death. The Finger by Doruntina Basha

Iteration: The Powers That Be a Rock Opera
by Deborah Randall and Alan Scott
The Church of SHE is called to takeover the Light of the World church in Mexico. This brand new work evokes contemporary issues of human atrocities as well as absurdities set to pop-culture mockery, poetry, and rock. Eight women take the stage with their instruments and voices and only one purpose, to change the world.
Venus is launching a LoveShop! An empowerment workshop that leaves participants feeling revitalized. LoveShop is available for bookings all year round at Venus Theatre or in alternate locations. If you need to empower a group of people, please email.
Help us reach our first goal - raise artist stipends to $200.
Our people have given so much at Venus. We have produced SIXTY-SIX women empowering scripts and stand among the longest running women's theatre companies in the world. We think it's time we start paying our people more. No amount is to small and no amount is to large.
We hope you will journey over this bridge with us. We've got some pretty big plans ahead.
