Love Does Not Hurt Performance

On Monday January 25th, OMSA proudly presents Love Does Not Hurt…, a multimedia performance that empowers and engages by “unapologetically speaking healing and love into existence.” The performance creates a safe space for girls and womyn while empowering all attendees in order to effect social change and to create dialogue on issues including domestic violence, reproductive justice, healthy sexuality, and mass media.

Love Does Not Hurt…examines intimate partner violence through painting, drawing, collaging, poetry, movement, and music combined into a stage production, and engages the audience in the voices of intimate partner and domestic violence.

“This mind, body and soul experience not only gives womyn images of empowered girlhood and womanhood, but also offers boys and men images that are not misogynistic or limits boyhood and manhood to power, control and aggression over girls and womyn.”

Love Does Not Hurt…is written and directed by Aquamoon, an entity of SpokenExistence, Inc.
