Presented by the eQuality Project, The Human Rights Research and Education Centre, and The Shirley Greenberg Chair
The Ghomeshi Effect is a verbatim dance-theatre performance that tackles sexual violence in Canada, particularly how it is handled in the legal system, through an edited series of documented interviews, and uses dance to inform and interrogate the language used in the discussion of sexual violence.
Members of the company will perform selections from the show, as well as discuss the history of the production, what they learned from listening to and interpreting real stories of sexual violence, and how they intend to continue this important conversation with future audiences.
This free event is in collaboration with the The Official 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign.
The presentation will be followed by a reception sponsored by Pure Kitchen Ottawa.
Tickets are free and may be reserved here.
