About this Event

"I can honestly say that this show is saving lives" from Kamilah Forbes, Executive Producer at the Apollo Theater ​

Come celebrate Leslie's 29th Birthday, she invites you to come see her one woman show "This Is How We Heal."

The 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. The show demonstrates the power of the body to tell the truth in order to fully embody freedom.

If you are not able to attend this show but would like to gift me with a birthday gift by sponsoring someone else's ticket, please purchase a ticket and email me at hello@leslielissaint.com with the subject line "sponsor."

**the show is for high school age or older

"Stunning and powerful and guttural work. I cried several times during the show. I cried several more times during the talk back. I am a different person after this performance. I am going to walk through the world in and with my body in a new kind of way because I was in that room." Caroline Rothstein

Hope to see you there!
