Monday night, I had the pleasure of attending a theater event on campus here at UT, focused completely on sex and consent and the importance of consent, “Get Sexy, Get Consent.” The director of Voices Against Violence uses a form called Theater for Dialogue which involves audience participation, facilitation and theater to increase understanding, and in many cases, to heal conflicts.
It was so wonderful to be there and to see such important work being done and made me feel even more strongly that I’m called to do the work that theater and politics and social justice can do. It’s a beautiful gift to have those elements in all parts of my life, and to see all elements combined in Bedposts (which also got a lovely review in the Daily Texan) is awesome. I’m lucky to know the folks at VAV as well. I felt alive and full and authentic and engaged.
Speaking of authenticity, tonight I’ll be going to Interfaith Central Texas to be part of a discussion on that very subject. I’m looking forward to it.
