Silencing Sally Walker’s Dream: When did her thing become your thing?
November 20th ~ 4:30-6:00 ~ QUAD 264
This forum begins with a short performance depicting real experiences of members of the CSB|SJU community. We present a sequence of scenes that aim to shed light on the sometimes overt and sometimes subtle gestures, words and sounds that are part of a culture that treats girls and women as objects. We think that such normalized behavior shapes self-perception and silences women’s voices.
Audience members will be engaged in REFLECTION, ACTION and DIALOGUE as we invite you to collaborate to retell the story and attempt to change the outcome. We start by posing questions, and while we are certain that you will not leave with all the answers, we hope that you will be inspired to act for the change you want to see. We urge you to join us to explore alternatives and Rehearse for Life.
REFLECTION ACTION DIALOGUE (RAD) is a CSB|SJU Student Organization supported collaboratively by METOCA (Multiplication y Exploración del Teatro del Oprimido en Centroámerica), Danielle Taylor and Roy Ketchum along with the Center for Global Education and other on-campus partners. The seed of RAD was planted in the Guatemala Semester Study Abroad program. It continues to be cultivated and tended by METOCA. With roots in the global learning of the Guatemala program and Theater of the Oppressed, RAD’s branches extend into campus life at CSB|SJU and anywhere else that you want to take them.
