  On this edition of Your Call, we’ll speak with women artists who are responding to sexual harassment through performance, sculpture, and other art forms.

“Nevertheless,” a show that draws its name from the feminist rallying cry “nevertheless, she persisted,” combines song and dance, guerrilla installations, and comedy to call attention to gender-based harassment. The artists and performers draw on their own lived experiences to offer a cathartic reflection on everything from being told to smile to being followed home at night. How does creative expression challenge harassment?

Guests:

Tanya Chianese, founder and Artistic Director of the performing arts ensemble ka-nei-see | collective

Allison Bouganim, sculptor and creator of Wax That Ass

Heather Arnett, director of Cat Call Choir
