How does theatre respond to the issues that currently define us? Join us for a a unique and timely experience with THE SEXUAL POLITICS SERIES. This performance of published and ensemble-created works explores how theatre, as an art form, has illuminated, illustrated and even misrepresented issues of discrimination, empowerment and abuse on several levels. Altogether moving, thought-provoking and sometimes humorous, the exploration of these complex issues is brought to the Arena Theatre on November 11th and 12th.
A major focus of the performance will subsequently be on strengthening community and communication, with interactive post-show discussions led by Professors Black and Effiong alongside campus community leaders with experience in supporting and advocating for safety and survivors. Audience members should note that in order to address these topics in a meaningful way, the show will cover subject matter that includes stalking, gender-based violence, non-consent, homophobia, and more. With an understanding that these depictions may trigger unwanted reactions, safe space facilitators will be available throughout the show for assistance.
Run time is approximately 80 minutes, followed by a post-show discussion of 20-30 minutes.
