Girl Be Heard presents the world premiere of this devised theater piece about the powerful and insidious role rape culture plays in our society. More…
'Blurred Lines' is a performance and a conversation that draws attention to the profound impact of rape culture, and challenges audiences to reflect on the roles we all play in a society that promotes silence and blurs the lines of consent. When did we stop listening to each other? How did self-entitlement and lack of empathy for one another become normal? At what point did it become acceptable—even sexy—to sing about sexual violence, and to laugh at jokes about rape? By taking the shame out of talking about sex and sexual assault, 'Blurred Lines' strives to inspire healing through storytelling and empower a new generation of leaders to end cycles of sexual violence. Every performance is followed by a 20-minute talk back featuring a variety of speakers.
See it if You want to see young women performing their own content about VERY relevant issues to their lives. You care about fighting rape culture.
Don't see it if You dislike an assemblage of different stories/ prefer a linear narrative. Possibly better appreciated by a teenage/young adult audience.
