Webs: A Circus about healing from sexualized violence

Jan 6, 2023 @ 8:00 pm


Tennessee-Based Circus Ensemble, One World Circus, will perform Webs, a show that weaves together stories of healing and justice for survivors of sexual trauma. Through feats of aerial, tightrope, song, and storytelling they share narratives that call for justice, a new era of sex education for young people, and the end of rape culture. The show will be presented by Raleigh’s local aerial ensemble and circus arts school, Cirque De Vol Productions, at Burning Coal Theatre on January 6 and 7, 2023 and at Levin Jewish Community Center on January 8, 2023.

More about Webs:

Webs is a collection of stories about healing from sexualized violence as told through the mediums of circus, music, and poetry.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ These stories come courageously from our real-life cast, friends, and community members. They are stories about living through the experience of sexualized violence and finding the courage to heal.​​​​​​​​

We share these stories to remind survivors and those who know them that it is possible to feel whole again and that we are allowed to imagine and craft a world where this kind of thing doesn’t happen. We share these stories to remember that none of us is alone in the survivor’s experience.

“This circus invites the audience to enjoy feats of honesty and daring aerials, acrobatics and spoken word while imagining a world without limits.” Johnson City Press, 2019
