Roe Panel discussion

Event Location
Rarig Center

330 21st Ave S
Minneapolis, MN 55455

The Department of Theatre Arts & Dance productions of Roe by Lisa Loomer and Fucking A by Suzan-Lori Parks have showed us that “bodily autonomy” does not only refer to the issue of reproductive rights, but also how our social status can impact what choices are available to us and the ability to tell our own stories. 

Please join Kym Longhi (Director of Roe; Intimacy Director of Fucking A) and a panel of university experts for a discussion on the many facets of “bodily autonomy.” Some questions we will be considering are: What are the complexities behind the concept and rhetoric of “choice”? How does theatre illuminate the possibilities and limitations of the legal system and civic action in protecting bodily autonomy?

Place: Thrust Theater, Rarig Center

Admission: This event is free and open to the public! Snacks will be provided.


Serra Hakyemez, Assistant Professor of Anthropology & Global Studies
