THE DOWNTOWN URBAN THEATER FESTIVAL PROUDLY RETURNS TO THE HERE ARTS CENTER FOR IT’S 7TH SEASON/ 2009!

DOWNTOWN URBAN THEATER FESTIVAL

DUTF is a two-week celebration of urban theatrical expression by a cross-section of playwrights and performing artists. With an inclusive, multicultural perspective, this annual event showcases theatrical works that echo the true spirit of urban life and speak to a whole new generation whose lives defy categorizing along conventional lines.

DUTF focuses on the playwright. At DUTF, we help playwrights bring their vision to the stage by giving them total control of their work. They are involved in all aspects of the theatrical work from staging and direction to casting and rehearsals. DUTF has been a catalyst for some of New York City’s most vibrant and creative playwrights. Since its inception, DUTF has presented over 40 original theatrical works and has attracted more than 5,000 theatre-goers.

WHERE MY GIRLS AT?
A fun-filled one-woman show, take on the black lesbian experience that challenges -head on- the notion that there’s only one way to be black or queer in the 21st century.
