Sat 4/6 at 3pm
Sun 4/7 at 3pm
LENGTH OF SHOW: 90 minutes
At IRT Theater:
154 Christopher St. NYC (west of Hudson)
Buzzer 3B (third floor)
A full-length program of boundary-pushing movement art, spoken word, songs and monologues that explore gender identity, rape culture, sex trafficking, masculinity, reclaiming ones body, and getting creative about seeking consent.
*The Teens of GoodCapp Arts will perform excerpts from Katie Cappiello's widely-toured productions, unpacking topics such as rape culture, sex trafficking, consent, masculinity, and slut-shaming.
*Movement Artist/Storyteller Evelyn Lilian Sanchez Narvaez will share an original piece about obtaining the consent of a surprising partner.
*Interdisciplinary artist, facilitator and activist Raquel Almazan will perform The Virgin Stripper, a monologue from her full-length play, She Wolves, based on her experiences with rape culture. Reflecting the personal #MeToo experience of the playwright, this piece is a revolutionary call to action for women to defend themselves against their abusers in their home, work place and societies at large.
*Marcela Avelina will perform music embodying unapologetic vulnerability and empowerment through her songwriting.
Content Warning: Strong language and brief descriptions of disturbing scenarios.
