There are no voiceless people. Only the voices that have not been heard yet, or are not paid attention to. This is my body is a unique showcase of women storytellers, each performing an original 5-minute one-woman show. Come join us for an event celebrating and showcasing women storytellers in the Bay as they share original stories around the theme of: 'this is my body.' You can watch the full show here.
