The term, ‘drama’ comes from a Greek word meaning “action”: “to do” or “to act”.
For those who have not been directly affected by sexual violence, the pain it causes can be hard to imagine. Theater can a powerful way to provide survivors with the space to share their experience with the public. But you absolutely do not have to be a survivor in order to create a moving and powerful performance that addresses these issues. You can devise a fictional play (Check out Slut: The Play) and create characters who experience and survive sexual violence. Whether in the form of a video or a live performance, drama is a powerful, creative and meaningful way to bring a relatable message to your audience.
