V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. Since 2016, V-Day Stuttgart, Germany has been raising money in the Stuttgart community for women’s crisis centers. V-Day Stuttgart promotes and performs creative events to increase awareness, raise money and support existing anti-violence organizations to help all women, cisgender, transgender, and gender non-conforming.
In February 2018 New English American Theater in cooperation with V-Day Stuttgart produced a benefit production of Eve Ensler‘s The Vagina Monologues, giving all proceeds to women’s crisis centers in Stuttgart. In addition to the shows, there was a variety show and silent art auction. V-Day Stuttgart worked with local artists, musicians, and theaters who volunteered their time, talent, and spaces to support the fight against violence. Our theater troupe is an active part of the English language theater community in Stuttgart and we are committed to giving back to the community of Stuttgart that we love so much.
We are asking for a small amount of start-up cash to finance our advertising, theater and costuming costs for V-Day 2019. We will be performing A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant, and a Prayer in and around Stuttgart in February. We are obligated to donate all of our profit from ticket sales to local charities and a small amount to Eve Ensler's V-Day campaign "The Resistance". We want to make sure that every cent spent on tickets to our events goes to our beneficiaries. We seek to make V-Day Stuttgart a long-lasting, popular event that feeds the community with theater AS AN ACT OF RESISTANCE to violence against women and girls.
We try to make the productions as low-budget (in the good way) as possible. The more money we raise, the more we can donate to the crisis centers!
In 2018, V-Day Stuttgart managed to raise more money than ever before with ticket sales, a silent art auction, and individual, private donations to donate to Stuttgart’s own Frauen helfen Frauen and Frauenberatungs-und Therapiezentrum Fetz. We are produced and supported by a non-profit cultural foundation, New English American Theater.
