Expressing yourself through theatrical performing arts can help you, as a sexual assault survivor, heal in all kinds of colourful ways. Not only can it give you personal empowerment and growth, but it can also help carry a powerful voice. Many survivors lose their voice, so being able to project it into a dramatic, expressive setting on stage can help those without a voice to know they are not alone and that we stand by them at all times. Thanks to an amazing Survivor Advocate, Kimleigh Smith, (also from RAINN Speakers Bureau) and her wonderful talent in the performing arts, her own story of survival is being used on stage with her play «T-O-T-A-L-L-Y» by Kimleigh’ to help other survivors find their own voice. Now it is Lithuania’s turn to witness her talent.
