BABES at Live Girls!: "The New Threat to Humanity...The Lack Thereof!"
Inspired by Live Girls! Notorious Women Educational Outreach Program, the performance of THE NEW THREAT TO HUMANITY...THE LACK THEREOF! is a culmination of an eight week workshop with Caroline Brown of the Theater for Development program at the University of Winchester in England. In it, the diverse women of BABES will address the theme of humanity, focusing on people vs. numbers and experiences vs. cases.  In particular they will look at the specialized needs of women living with HIV/AIDS, stigmas they face and also the current threat to the reauthorization of the Ryan White CARE Act.  

Theatre for Development (TFD) is a social development practice that uses performance as a tool to help individuals and groups express themselves to the community with the intent of social advocacy. It is recognized internationally as a strong tool for participatory development with sustainable results as it offers a practical and theoretical exploration of the ways in which the arts can be used by communities to create powerful social transformations on their own terms. The application of TFD in the current project between Live Girls! and BABES is one of its kind in the US.  Caroline Brown is the facilitator of this TFD workshop and is visiting Seattle on the heels of her recent work with AIDS widows in Kenya. Using Theatre for Development, the women there enlightened their local community about the underlying social causes and repercussions of AIDS in accordance with their own experience.  

BABES Network, A Program of the YWCA of Seattle - King County - Snohomish County
BABES Network-YWCA is a peer led program, a sisterhood of women facing HIV together. Founded on the concept that HIV+ women are uniquely qualified to understand and encourage one another, BABES was started by a diverse group of HIV positive women who came together to share information, experiences, and support. BABES reduces isolation, promotes self-empowerment, enhances quality of life, and serves the needs of women living with HIV by providing peer support, advocacy, education and outreach.

Live Girls! is a theater dedicated to producing and developing new works by women.
We challenge the current under representation of women in theater by:
-Empowering women artists to be leaders and create their own opportunities;
-Providing the public with opportunities to see plays by women;
-Advocating for women playwrights and their work in the theater community;
-Celebrating women's contributions to society;
-Creating exciting events that entertain our audiences, and provoke responses.
