Following a college girl on a night out, moving back and forth from bedroom to bar scenes, one actress plays 16 characters, both comic and dramatic. Night turns to morning, and “Anygirl” awakens from her ordeal as a disoriented yet brave survivor. This show is designed to provoke thought and dialogue around date rape and consent, ultimately challenging our thinking and behaviour surrounding alcohol, drugs and sexual assault.
The play stars Emmelia Gordon who earned a Jessie Richardson award “Outstanding Actress” for this role.
Dissolve addresses the serious issues of sexual consent, drink spiking and drug-facilitated sexual assault from an entertaining and darkly humorous perspective. Dissolve has been touring to theatres, colleges, universities and high schools throughout North America for over a decade.
It is especially relevant for students of age to enjoy the freedom and independence that comes with socializing with friends and classmates.
This is a wake-up call that you need to consider bringing to your community or school.
Dissolve is presented as part of UBC ARTIVISM: Politics of the Body, Sept 6 – Oct 11
