INSPIRE UT Presents: SPEAK: A Multilingual Show

INSPIRE UT Presents: SPEAK: A Multilingual Show

We're here to say what we mean. We're here to speak. About ourselves. About our bodies. About our experiences. About love and relationships, sexuality, culture.

We’re here to say things that aren’t being said. Things we’ve been told we can’t say, because our real feelings don’t always translate or because what we have to say will make people uncomfortable. These words in your minds - from our lips.

SPEAK is a multilingual monologue show written by the performers. In conjunction with Sexual Assault Awareness Month, INSPIRE UT asked men and women to speak in their own languages about themselves - their experiences, their idea of love, their relationships, their bodies - because we believe that talking about these things - in the ways that people think about them, in all languages - has the power to tear down the mystery surrounding them and to help others find their voices and the power to SPEAK.
