“Brick By Brick”
Dismantling Rape Culture One Performance At A Time

Friday March 9th
Saturday March 10th


“An amazing, complex evening of theatre to raise awareness.”

“An eye opening and lovely experience! I’m so grateful for [the performances] to help spread awareness to end sexual violence.”

“I’ve never seen anything like it…a disarmingly honest expression.” 

In April 2017, a group of Bay Area theater-makers united to tell transformative stories about rape culture and its impact on community. The event was curated with selected scenes from plays, original one-acts by local playwrights, testimonials, spoken word, stand-up comedy, and musical performance.

On March 9th and 10th, 2018, the storytelling and conversation continue. The team at Planets & Branches , along with Novato Theater Company, will be presenting “Brick by Brick: Dismantling Rape Culture One Performance at a Time”.

The goal of the production is to unite community to collectively engage with these performances and empower a modern audience to discuss issues of rape culture. With #MeToo, #TimesUp, and other movements, it’s very clear that a conversation around sexual violence must not only be initiated, but sustained. This event will entertain, inform and empower people through scenes by local playwrights, stand-up comedians, musicians, and other performers. There will also be a follow-up discussion with community advocates. It will be a unique, safe, and supportive community-building event meant to start discussions about these prevalent issues.
