Show Notes


If We Were Birds


WARNING: This production is not recommended for those under 17 years of age.

From the director: If We Were Birds gives voice to the many women who have been silenced through violence and who have been shunned, vilified, or persecuted simply for having survived these atrocities. As a director I am interested in exploring the resilience of the human spirit. What is it that allows us to carry on when we have lost everything including our ability to speak the truth? How does grief get swallowed and transformed into revenge? And finally, what can we do to empower those who have been scarred both physically and emotionally by these acts of war?

*WARNING: This performance contains sexual violence, sexual content, violence and language that some people may find offensive.**
