Survival of the Fittest

Project Girl Performance Collective, featuring several Pace students and alumni, will perform their NY International Fringe Festival hit, Girl Power: Survival of the Fittest, on March 25 in NYC.

Last year, the audience at the New York International Fringe Festival heard them roar. They’ve also taken to the stage at the United Nations’ Youth Conference on Children’s Rights, the 64th United Nations Commission on the Status of Women Conference, and the Estrogenius Festival. And now they’re ready to take on a Pace audience!

Project Girl Performance Collective (PGPC) will perform their Fringe Festival hit, GirlPower: Survival of the Fittest for the Pace Community on March 25 in the Student Union on the NYC Campus. Through monologues, spoken word, song, and dance exploring their struggles with peer pressure, body image, being an outcast, and more, PGPC will leave people in the audience feeling empowered. The event is free and open to the public!

A New York-based nonprofit that provides teens with a fearless space to create and perform original work addressing social, political, and cultural issues, PGPC was founded by Pace alumna Ashley Marinaccio ’07, who will be performing in the show alongside six other Pace students and a diverse ensemble of girls between the ages of 12 and 21.
