Red Thread: Story Circle Exploring Traumatic Birth

Memory War Theater invites you to participate in a half day of story sharing and exploration around traumatic birth. 

We are inviting a small group of women who have experienced a traumatic birth to attend this half-day workshop. Theater artist Tikka Sears facilitates the workshop with support from psychologist Leslie Butterfield. 

The workshop will invite storytelling and exploration of our birth stories using drama therapy, interactive theater, art and storytelling.  Our goal is to create a space where individuals who have experienced traumatic birth can share stories and process their own stories in a healing and creative environment.

This project is part of a larger theater project that explores traumatic birth and there is an opportunity to work with this project in multiple ways. This story telling workshop is the first in a series of events to create spaces where we can communally share our stories. 

This workshop is FREE. Please register online for the workshop and answer a few questions about your experience and why you would like to participate. Please register only if you are certain that you can attend as space is very limited. Workshop location and logistics will be sent after registration takes place. The deadline to register is August 5, 2016. For more information, go to

Sponsored by: Memory War Theater with support from the Mayors Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs. Memory War Theater is a partner project of Shunpike.
