WHO: Leslie Lissaint, An extremely well versed and learned artist who has decided this was the year to finally express her artistry live and in person on a stage.
SHOW: THIS IS HOW WE HEAL, A ground-breaking one woman show she combines spoken word poetry, contemporary movement and sound as a vehicle for storytelling. This Is How We Heal is an autobiographical telling of one’s process to mend in light of the traumas of fatherlessness, drug addiction, mass incarceration, and the loneliness that silence births. This vulnerable performance is timely and culturally relevant. The show demonstrates the power of the body to tell the truth in order to fully embody freedom.
