One Billion Rising
One Billion Rising Gala: An Evening of Dance is part of the global mass action to end violence against women and girls.
Join New Hampshire’s professional dance community and student performers from Arts in Reach as they return to The Music Hall in the One Billion Rising Gala in support of Haven NH.
Presented by Neoteric Dance Collaborative, a Seacoast based multi-disciplinary dance company, the evening of dance continues the success of the 2016 event which brought together 50+ performers for an evening of Bravery, Strength and Celebration.
One Billion Rising is a campaign to end violence against women that grew out of Eve Ensler’s V-Day. It is a catalyst that uses art and activism to educate and inspire.
One in three women, that’s ONE BILLION WOMEN on the planet, will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. Dancing is defiance.
The One Billion Rising Gala will showcase the talents of dancers and musicians from across the region, sharing the stories of survivors and exploring the challenges we all still face.
VIP tickets include an OBR 2017 Gift Bag, as well as attendance to a special pre-show event beginning at 5:30pm with refreshments. 100% of proceeds will be donated to HAVEN, benefiting their education, prevention, and support services in Rockingham and Strafford County and ensuring that they can continue their mission of Ending Violence and Changing Lives.
