(WASHINGTON, D.C.)—The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts announces its 13th New Visions/New Voices workshop from May 16 to May 18, 2014. A biennial showcase dedicated to developing new plays and musicals written for young people and their families, New Visions/New Voices 2014 will present eight new works including six selected from theater companies based in Chicago, IL; Minneapolis, MN; Bethesda, MD; Atlanta, GA; Cork, Ireland; and Belfast, Northern Ireland; one musical commissioned by the Kennedy Center; and one play from Vincennes, France as part of the showcase’s Translation Project. Additionally, New Visions/New Voices 2014 will again host international playwright observers. While each play has a specific intended age range, over the course of the showcase, attendees will experience work geared towards young people from infancy through high school—the broadest range in New Visions/New Voices history.
“As the field of theater for young audiences has grown over time, so has the New Visions/New Voices showcase,” explains co-founding director of New Visions/New Voices and director of Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audiences Kim Peter Kovac. “With a diverse array of artistic and cultural offerings, this year’s workshop will continue to push the industry to new heights.”
Since its inception in 1991, New Visions/New Voices has assisted in the development of 88 new plays, musicals, and operas from 78 playwrights and 35 composers working with 57 American and 8 international theater companies. The biennial showcase has been honored twice for distinguished service to the field of theater for young audiences. The American Association for Theater and Education first honored it in 1998; a second honor by the Children’s Theater Foundation of America was presented in 2000.
