#HealMeToo Festival Presents: She Said
Lily Ali-Oshatz will present a workshop/reading of her piece She Said.
She Said chronicles one person's experience with rape and her choice to report the crime. Using poetry, storytelling and original music, this one person musical is a call to action and a reminder that our laws cannot be changed until we change our culture. Only then can we begin to hope.
Developmental Direction by Blayze Teicher and Maya Evans.
Developmental Choreography by Gabriel Spector.
Piano Arrangements by Mark Galinovsky.
