Through the performance and post-show talkbacks, I Killed the Cow stimulates communities to move toward a more constructive understanding of the causes of sexual violence.
- I Killed the Cow — the semi-autobiographical one-woman show — uses personal narrative to open the floor for communication.
- It is the dynamic story of one woman as she unearths the moments in her life that have shaped her into the sexual being that she is — including her assault.
- The inclusive style and spirited honesty allows for audiences to relate their own experiences of sexuality and consent.
- By including comedy, I Killed the Cow allows dialogue to happen in a way that traditional lectures and team building exercises do not.
- We lead post-show discussions and workshops that allow for communities to strengthen, increasing collaboration, and therefore increasing growth prospects.
