Persephone Bound

“If a girl says no, and no one is around to hear her, did she really say no?”

October 5, 2017 at 7:00pm
50 min solo show followed by a talk-back 
Location: McGill University- Moyse Hall Theatre

The Office for Sexual Violence Response, Support and Education will host a performance of the newly released production Persephone Bound. This intensely visceral play uses aerial circus performance, text and music to explore the meaning of consent through the lens of a contemporary retelling of the Greek myth of Persephone. It is a thought provoking exploration of what it means to come forward as a young survivor of sexual assault: What are the consequences of speaking out? How can survivors of sexual violence seek justice? How can we heal ourselves and each other in the wake of such abuse? Join us to explore this and other important questions about sexual violence
and its aftermath.
