ArtsEmerson performance of Mr. Joy

Newton Public Schools was selected by METCO, Inc. as a host for this year’s ArtsEmerson performance of Mr. Joy. For the last three years, through a partnership with METCO, Inc., the statewide METCO organization, ArtsEmerson has taken the play on the road to select communities.

Mr. Joy is a one-person play that explores issues of race and class in America. All performances are free and open to the public. The play is recommended for adults and students 10 and older. Ticket reservations are highly recommended as space is limited. Reserve your ticket here.

Play Synopsis: Mr. Joy explores issues of race and class in America to help us find our common humanity. It is a poignant, funny and stirring solo piece that invites us to consider how we respond to violence as individuals and as a community, and the power of the invisible ties that bind us all.

Girls Empowerment Program

Artemis Girls – Stand Strong, Stand Tall guides girls to seek their own true voice with yoga, mindfulness, breathwork, creative expression and self-reflection.

When girls feel confident about their bodies, their self-worth and their intelligence and they have practiced how to handle self-doubt and adolescent stresses, they have an opportunity to go into the world and fully express themselves — as girls, as women, as humans.

Artemis Girls Stand Strong, Stand Tall creates a safe space for girls ages 10-13 to build strength of body, mind and spirit while developing the skills of communication and self-respect to empower and inspire girls. Classes include weekly yoga and mindfulness, group collaboration and games and independent thinking coupled with an art, journal or other creative activity centered on themes such as:

· Body Confidence and Self-Respect
· Stress & Self-Care
· Emotional Awareness
· Identity & Labels
· Honest, Healthy Friendships & Social Stamina

The program meets weekly in a 90 minute session on Friday afternoons co-taught by Amy Hrobak and Tracy Affonso, both experienced school educators and youth yoga and mindfulness instructors. Fee: $150 Please email liz@artemisyoga.com if you have any questions or call 617-393-3590.
