Theatre as a tool for survivors of sexual assault and rape?

logo of theatre empowerment companyA theatre company in Norwich has launched to work “with and for” survivors of sexual assault and rape, and their friends and families.

The Theatre Empowerment Company has an under-construction website, which says its main aims are:

  • To engage with survivors and their friends and family that have been affected by rape and sexual assault.
  • To build a creative theatre company working as an ensemble to create quality theatre/performance/art.
  • To further devise a method of working specifically for members of the community who are affected by sexual violence.
  • To be available to the community to raise awareness of the strength of survivors and to assist any other organisations with similar aims and objectives in an outreach capacity.

Also, they’re on Facebook.
