Eve's Newest Play In The Body of The World World Premieres at American Repertory Theater (ART) in May
Eve will be world premiering her newest work In The Body of The World - at American Repertory Theater (ART) in Cambridge, MA from May 10-29, 2016. Tickets are going fast, reserve your seat today.
Written & performed by Eve and directed by Tony award winning director Diane Paulus. In this world premiere adaptation of her critically acclaimed 2013 memoir, Eve celebrates the strength and joy that connect a single body to the planet. As an activist and artist, she has spent her career speaking about the female body. While working in the Congo, where war continues to inflict devastating violence on women, she was diagnosed with stage III/IV uterine cancer. This diagnosis erased the boundaries between her work and her own body. In this raw, humorous, and bold performance, Eve charts the connections between the personal and the public, inviting and challenging all of us to come back into our bodies, and thus the world.
On 22 and 25 May, City of Joy's Christine Schuler Deschryver (V-Day's Congo Director and the Director of City of Joy) will be doing talkbacks after the performance. Don't miss the rare and incredible chance to come together with other supporters and hear the amazing update about City of Joy and V-World Farm firsthand from Christine.
