Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble presents:
A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer.
Hosted at Uncommon Ground Edgewater as part of their annual One Voice Series, A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer, edited by Eve Ensler, author of Vagina Monologues and Mollie Doyle, is a benefit performance for both the V-Day and One Billion Rising campaigns. A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer is a collection of monologues examining violence of all levels towards women and girls. Directed by CDE Ensemble Member, Maggie Robinson and Kristen Cone, each monologue will be devised using dance, theatre and multimedia. With the evening themed around solidarity, CDE collaborates with willing, local community members to share and speak their truths, either as themselves or through a performer.
Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble annually hosts the One Voice Series to unite and empower surivors, as well as spread awareness on domestic and sexual assault violence to inspire action and change. This year’s One Voice Series benefit performance is part of both the V-Day and One Billion Rising campaigns. The V-Day and One Billion Rising campaigns seek to raise awareness around violence towards not only women and girls, but men and boys, as well. Throughout the month of February, men and women come together to host events internationally to take action, share stories, raise money and educate the community. CDE is pleased to host this year’s One Voice Series at Uncommon Ground Edgewater. All proceeds will be donated to a local domestic violence charities providing support for individuals to leave unsafe environments in the Chicagoland area.
Guests are strongly encouraged to book a table and purchase tickets in advance.
