Survivor Theatre Project is a FREE theater arts experience for survivors of sexual violence.
Two upcoming performances of the STP original:
"The World We Live In Is Not The World We Live In"

Rural Forum on Domestic & Sexual Violence
(registered guests only)
June 14th 7:30pm
Yoga Sanctuary, 3rd Floor Thornes Market
150 Main St Northampton MA

Alternately poignant and irreverent, survivors use original poetry, dance, humor (and chocolate)to address a topic as impossibly troubling as it is deeply inspiring: Healing your life from sexual violence while living in a culture that encourages it.
“I expected to feel outrage and grief, but I came away transformed by the wit, courage and solidarity of the performers.” ~Audience member, Northampton 2011!
"There is humor, intellect, fire, beauty, boldness, bravery, and healing in this work!" ~STP Survivor/Artist, Northampton MA!
"An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo." ~Seth Godin!
Survivor Theatre Project brings survivors themselves into the center of the effort to break silence and end sexual abuse through empowerment, creativity, and reaching out to the greater community. Performances are engaging, poignant, funny, and provocative, and open up dialogue within our communities to address the reality of how common sexual abuse is, and what we can do to stop it.!
