Description: 

A special NYC performance of Secret Survivors, a play in a series by the arts organization Ping Chong and Company that draws on interviews, writings, and conversations with survivors of child sexual abuse. The performers -- themselves survivors -- tell their powerful stories of abuse, touching on issues of societal taboo, fear, and silence. Both personally cathartic and socially aware, the play "seeks to use direct personal narrative to show that this violence is epidemic, to represent the diverse ways it occurs, and grapple with the many reasons that most survivors remain silent," says Chong.

Silence -- as evidenced by the fact that only 10 percent of cases are reported -- is one of the key barriers to child sexual abuse prevention. That is why the Ms. Foundation for Women is committed to elevating the voices of survivors whose stories break through the silence that perpetuates abuse and challenge the myths that inform public understanding, policies and programs. Community-based approaches that encourage healing and honest dialogue -- like Ping Chong's innovative play -- are the first step towards building a new movement to end child sexual abuse.
