The eQuality Project, led by Valerie SteevesThe Shirley Greenberg Chair in Women and the Legal Profession, & The Human Rights Research and Education Centre are proud to sponsor an upcoming performance of The Ghomeshi Effect: Meet the Artists.

The Ghomeshi Effect is a verbatim dance-theatre piece that tackles sexual violence in Canada, particularly how it is handled in the legal system, through an edited series of documented interviews, and uses dance to inform and interrogate the language used in the discussion of sexual violence.

Members of the company will perform selections from the show, as well as discuss the history of the production, what they learned from listening to and interpreting real stories of sexual violence, and how they intend to continue this important conversation with future audiences. 

The event will take place at Academic Hall (uOttawa) on Thursday, December 7 2017 from 7:30-9:30pm. The performance will be followed by a reception.

This event is in collaboration with the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign.
