Monologues that Matter

May 31, 2010

This post is part of the Theatre’s Rape Culture series.

In discussing performance arts and theatre, it wouldn’t be prudent to simply write about performances. Sometimes, you simply have to watch them and form your own opinion. Also, I would like to take the opportunity to point out that using the words ‘performances’ or ‘theatre’ seems to give the below clips the wrong connotation. The theatre is a platform but that doesn’t mean that these monologues are ‘theatric’. When I was putting together this series, I was worried that readers might think I was categorizing this aspect of theatre’s rape culture as part of a show–but it’s not. There are microphones and sometimes curtains, but these are still individuals who want to be heard.

So, in keeping with this series’ theme, here are several powerful pieces that use the stage as a form of expression, and release:
