Feb 14, 2013 Rising up!

Risin’ up is a theater, dance, art event to educate about and protest against violence against women and children.  After introducing the movement One Billion Rising (OBR) from Eve Ensler’s organization Vday, a cast of 11 women will perform “A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, and A Prayer” (MMRP). Then, the dancing begins with instruction on OBR’s flash mob dance to “Break the Chain,” hip hop free dance time, salsa instruction, salsa free dance time, swing instruction, swing free dance time, live vocal performa…nces, and all the while paint and paper will be available for reflection and expression. We will end the night with a video-taping of the “Break the Chain” flash mob dance, performed by all that attend and wish to dance.  We will also make contacts for a future public performance of the flash mob dance.  Let’s RISE UP!   Tickets for MMRP are 300 baht at the door. The show will begin with an intro to the OBR event at 7:00. 10% proceeds will benefit this year’s Vday annual initiative and 90% will be used for facilitating a “Bring Out the Godess” retreat for the women living with HIV at Bangkok’s shelter at the Association for the Promotion of the Status of Women (APSW). OBR is a free event for unification and demonstration beginning at 8:30.  However, donations towards MMRP’s beneficiary project are MOST WELCOME! Questions?
