Your Call: Soaring dancers confront violence against women

Sep 29, 2016

 


On the September 29th edition of Your Call, Flyaway Productions’ choreographer Jo Kreiter joins us to discuss her latest piece, Grace and Delia are Gone.

The aerial production addresses violence against women, drawing on traditional murder ballads and the performance site, a former military base.

Intimate partner violence remains the greatest threat to women’s health. There is more awareness raising about this issue than ever. What concrete changes are we seeing? Tweet your questions and comments to @yourcallradio and join us live at 10am with me, Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Jo Kreiter, artistic director of Flyaway Productions

Denise Caramagno, licensed psychotherapist and the Director of the CARE Program at UCSF
