Broad Night: Demystifying Women's Health
Chicago Filmmakers
Chicago, IL
Share this event:

Broad Night kicks off with a showing from This Boat Called My Body, a play inspired by stories from adolescents seeking abortions, and a preview of the web series The Doula Is In. Following, there will be an open discussion about abortion access for youth and the impact of parental consent laws in Illinois. Katy Collins, both doula and performer, will field questions about pregnancy and womens health.

This Boat Called My Body draws on stories the Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health has collected from youth across the state about their abortion experiences. A full-length, site-specific piece replete with spectacle, movement, opera, and interaction with water, the play asks tough questions. What are the troubled waters that young women navigate when seeking abortions? And, conversely, who and what helps sail them to safety?

Based on real stories, This Boat Called My Body is written by:
Quenna Lené Barrett
Christabel Donkor
Danielle Littman
Jessamyn Fitzpatrick
Clair Fuller
Nik Zaleski

Directed by Quenna Lené Barrett and Nik Zaleski
