Now I enjoy a Trump-ism as much as the next person, but – aside from the inclusion of clearly-labeled emergency exits – safety isn’t often what I’m seeking at a night out at the theatre.
The Ghomeshi Effect, a verbatim dance-theatre production that presents personal accounts of sexual assault survivors and the lawyers who handle their cases, opens Thursday, January 19 at The Gladstone Theatre. Throughout the show’s run, guest speakers – including Glen Canning, father of Rehtaeh Parsons – will take part in TGE Dialogues, a series of panel events about sexual assault, rape culture, PTSD, and the legal system.
Between finalizing the script, starting up regular rehearsals, taking the conversation about sexual assault into local Ottawa high schools, and starting our fundraising campaign, it’s been a busy couple of weeks here at The Ghomeshi Effect! Click here to read our second newsletter.
