About the Show

They grew up in a global pandemic. They came into their own amidst renewed calls for racial justice. In their own words, Black, Latinx and Asian American teens bridge identities, cultures and lived experiences to share who they are and what they want in the world. From first MetroCards and going out, to canceled proms and coming out, young New Yorkers voice experiences of loss and isolation as well as new-found ways to connect, create and claim space during a year of crisis and transformation. Fresh, insightful and optimistic against all odds, they are Generation Rise.

Creators Ping Chong and Company are no strangers to amplifying the voices of young New Yorkers. Undesirable Elements: Generation NYZ, starring NYC teenagers telling their true-life stories, appeared as part of the New Victory 2017-2018 season.

Generation Rise explores social responsibility in relation to the murder of George Floyd and the fight for racial justice, as well as the pandemic's effect on life and key rites of passage for teens.

Atmospheric lighting and soung are used in this production to convey the sense of isolation and distance the cast members felt while under lockdown due to Covid-19.
