When did we stop listening to each other? How did self-entitlement and lack of empathy for one another become normal? At what point did it become acceptable—even sexy—to sing about sexual violence, to laugh at jokes about rape?

Blurred Lines is a performance and a conversation, one that draws attention to the profound impact of rape in our society and challenges audiences to reflect on the roles we all play in a culture that promotes silence and blurs the lines of consent.

By taking the shame out of talking about sex and sexual assault, Blurred Lines inspires healing through storytelling and empowers a new generation of leaders to end cycles of sexual violence, from inside the home to college campuses and beyond. Now more than ever it feels crucial to engage, educate, and empathize with one another. Join us in witnessing the brave, original work of our inspiring artist-activists, and sharing their stories with the world.
