It is a heavy reality to know that 1 in 4 women in the UK will experience sexual violence at some point in their lives. Roughly 85,0000 women a year*.
THEM is a vehicle to reflect the upheaval sexual violence has on women today, physically, mentally, and politically. This is an opportunity to use the universal language of Hip Hop to engage with audiences to discuss a poignant topic continually in the headlines.
“This is an opportunity to create space for discussion, learning and understanding from young audiences around issues of consent and sexual assault, which has become commonplace within school settings.” Emma-Jane Greig, Artistic Director
