Flyaway Productions presents The Right to be Believed

May 26, 2017
8:30 pm
UC Hastings College of the Law on the outdoor wall

May 25-27 & June 1-3, 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm both days (each show runs 30 mins) Flyaway Productions presents The Right to be Believed, a site specific dance that explores the right to be believed for women, May 25-27 & June 1-3, UC Hastings College of the Law's Outdoor Wall. The Right to be Believed will give spectacular language to a serious sociopolitical issue that has not been carefully examined since Anita Hill challenged Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991. This site specific dance explores the lack of credibility for women that is simultaneously both a legal, social and economic problem. The project, created by Jo Kreiter, Artistic Director of Flyaway Productions, is inspired by Rebecca Solnit's article of the same topic in the October 2014 issue of Harpers magazine: by unprocessed rape kits too numerous to count; by the statistic asserted in John Krakauer's Missoula that 90 percent of reported rapes do not result in prosecution; by the rising number of pretextual abortion laws that infantilize and belittle women, while creating serious obstacles to abortion access; and by continuing inequities in work life law, where small differences in how men and women are treated lead to large gaps in wages, promotions and prestige. The Right to be Believed will use flight, inversion and a defiance of gravity to subvert limitations, to delight in the body despite unjust constraints, and to claim public space as a proving ground for women to be taken seriously in the nation's collective imagination.
