Concatenation

Divided into three acts, this work constructs and then deconstructs the impacts of male privilege and assault on the female body. “Act One” discusses how something as violating as touching a woman’s body without her permission is seen to be normal and accepting as touching an inanimate object. “Act two” explores the physiological impact and emotional weight of the silence that is carried by survivors of sexual abuse. And in “Act Three” there is emancipation in the space where the veil of secrecy is lifted and survivors can speak freely and safely.
