About this event

Webs is a collection of stories about healing from sexualized violence as told through the mediums of circus, music, and poetry.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ These stories come courageously from our real-life cast, friends, and community members. They are stories about living through the experience of sexualized violence and finding the courage to heal.​​​​​​​​

We share these stories to remind survivors and those who know them that it is possible to feel whole again and that we are allowed to imagine and craft a world where this kind of thing doesn't happen. We share these stories to remember that none of us is alone in the survivor’s experience.

"This circus invites the audience to enjoy feats of honesty and daring aerials, acrobatics and spoken word while imagining a world without limits." - Johnson City Press, 2019

"The unique aerial spiderweb apparatus is one of the main components used to address justice and change needed to combat sexual violence." - The East Tennessean, 2019
