SOARS (Story of a Rape Survivor) stars a diverse cast of women, combining photographs, dance, spoken word poetry and music to tell one woman's story of reclaiming her body, sexuality, and self-esteem after being sexually assaulted in college. This educational and entertaining performance featuring the music of Nina Simone, Maxwell and Sade aims to show that the shame, guilt and self-blame that rape victims too often experience can be eased; that the stories of rap survivors can be one of triumph and hope.
This event is free and open to the public.
