This Is How We Heal
In Leslie Lissaint’s ground-breaking first solo show she combines spoken word poetry, contemporary movement and sound as a vehicle for storytelling.
This Is How We Heal is an autobiographical telling of one’s process to mend in light of the traumas of fatherlessness, drug addiction, mass incarceration, and the loneliness that silence births.
This vulnerable performance is timely and culturally relevant. The show demonstrates the power of the body to tell the truth in order to fully embody freedom.
This Is How We Heal Writing Workshop
In addition to a ground-breaking performance, Lissaint also offers a groundbreaking workshop to help young people channel their pain into power and their hurt into healing through a creative writing and performance workshop. This workshop is FREE for young people between the ages of 13-19 and will be held at The Anacostia Arts Center at 12pm prior to the Matinee performance.
