Gripping, heart-wrenching, hilarious and inspiring, BODY is a provocative live performance about the insanity of eating, starving, binging, and body image. . . and the loud voice of shame that screams from the shadows in a naming and claiming of the madness that is branded on our skin and etched deep in our cells. BODY turns up the volume on the extremes we go to to be thin and fit in. Even empowered women who are advocates for radical self love and who stand for the eradication of shame in the world. No woman left behind. And that is just the beginning. . .
BODY is a visceral experience of the hunger pains of the feminine.
It gives powerful voice to the pervasive wounds that fuel our compulsions and drive our obsessions. It is a song of starvation that explodes into a chorus calling out the collective destruction of the feminine and its global impact.
From midnight attacks on a jar of peanut butter to the brutal attack of a woman in India, BODY weaves together the micro and the macro – fighting off the inner demons while defending from external ones – and how they feed each other.
Ultimately, BODY is a Rally Call to ReAwaken. It is a call to REmember, to RE-incarnate. . . and to REturn. It is about women and it is for men. It is a call to us all.
BODY is deeply personal. It is undoubtedly political. It is profoundly spiritual.

“This show… was EVERYTHING. EVERY…. thing. Brave, brutally transparent, painfully raw, unapologetically real… it’s a challenge to us all. To be the light in the dark.
