SkyPilot Theatre Company Heralds the #MeToo Movement with Unique New Show
Los Angeles – August, 2018 – SkyPilot Theatre is showing its support of the #MeToo movement with The #MeToo Project, a workshop performance that will explore the historical conditioning of how sexual harassment and violence occurs and the ongoing cycle that continues to push such behavior in all kinds of people and situations. The show will be on Wednesday, Aug. 22 at 8:30pm at River Rock Lounge 12825 Ventura Blvd, Studio City.
Directed by SkyPilot Artistic Director James Carey, The #MeToo Project features five actors – Sandi Milne, LeJon Lejon, Laura Walker,Anthony Backmanand June Carryl– who will take quotes from actual victims, survivors, defendants, families and employees who have either been touched by or are guilty of sexual deviance, harassment and assault to show how everyone, no matter how famous or powerful, can be touched, hurt, frightened, diminished and belittled when they are treated with disregard and humiliation. Many of the quotes come from famous people, but the performance will strive to show that this movement is for people from all walks of life, male and female alike.
“Change is in the air,” says Carey. “There is hope. There are very strong people, women and men both, who are standing up and saying ‘no more.’ People who are taking their lives back and pointing out the perpetrators by name and action. We want to honor that through our creativity and voice.”
Join SkyPilot Theatre for this controversial, powerful and heartrending exploration of the movement that is changing the ways that men and women are relating to each other in life, in the workplace and in society.
