Artivism Dance Theatre Presents Birds, Bees, and IUDs

Sun, May 21st, 2023 at 3:00 PM

Artivism Dance Theatre presents Birds, Bees, and IUDs in partnership with NOMA and Planned Parenthood. Birds, Bees, and IUDs utilizes the art of dance and theatre to speak directly about reproductive rights, health care, and sexual education from a personal and intersectional perspective. With honesty, vulnerability, and a splash of humor, this production challenges the standard of silence around bodies. Artivism Dance Theatre weaves in humor and satire while also embracing the heavy-hitting realities of living in a body that is both objectified and shrouded in mystery. In holding space for sorrow and celebration, Birds, Bees, and IUDs takes a raw and open look at real-life experiences to facilitate a collective conversation around the universal right to health, education, and dignity.


Panel Discussion Following the Performance

At 5 pm, following the performance, panelists from several organizations that are fighting for reproductive justice will talk about the Louisiana landscape and legislative session and the work that they are doing to fight for equity and access for all.
