Stories We Don’t Tell: Personal Experiences of Gender Based OppressionA community based theatre piece, directed by Brooke Leifso Produced in collaboration between the Gender Based Violence Prevention Program, APIRG and Global Education Program.**TRIGGER WARNING** the contents of this theatre piece discusses lived experiences of violence and contains content that may be triggering to individuals in the audience.We all live with a residual narrative of thoughts and experiences of violence towards our bodies, towards our gender- from the miniscule events that make up our everyday reality to the seismic ones that shift our world leaving nothing the same. Stories We Don’t Tell is about real experiences. It explores how gender impacts lives. It sheds light on those marginalized by gender and examines effects of socially accepted and normalized oppression, locally and globally. We resist our many layers of oppression by merely surviving, by being present and by telling our stories in the hopes that we are not alone. the event is free to attend. In the interest of accessibility, childcare is available for this event. Please email [email protected] by Jan 23 if you require childcare or have any other accessibility concerns (transport, ASL interpretation, etc) APIRG/this performance is located on Indigenous Territories and explicitly acknowledges that as we work towards identifying, challenging, and addressing intersections of oppression, it is critical to confront the ongoing practices of colonization of indigenous peoples and the land on which we live.To see event page click here.
