Based on an actual transcript from a 2008 trial in an Israeli courtroom, the 60-minute reading of Demonstrate shines a spotlight on the patriarchal response to a young woman’s testimony of her sexual assault.
Practically ripped from these past few weeks’ headlines, this performance not only mirrors our own national drama, but also lays bare one of the most pressing issues of our time. This live presentation by Israeli Stage further raises the stakes by reversing the gender roles of the performers. Women will take on the roles of the male defense attorney, prosecutor and judges, and a man will play the abused woman – revealing surprising yet searing insights into our society’s response to women's narratives.
A moderated panel discussion with subject-matter experts follows the reading.
