The Vagina Monologue is: The award-winning play is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women's sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives.

About The Organization

Aerial Art

Aerial Art is: an innovative new approach to using "the pole" as a tool for Peace | Strength | Self Expression. Pulling from the ancient knowledge and practice of yoga, we begin and end each practice with asana (yoga poses). Maintaining the mind-body-spirit connection throughout our practice with the pole. This is a space of personal growth and transformation. We are located in the Yama Yoga studios. In Downtown's Historic Third Ward.
