"Birth"

  • District House 1755 Northwest 16th Street Oklahoma City, OK, 73106 United States (map)

WITH THRIVE MAMA COLLECTIVE

SEPTEMBER 17, 2016
SHOWS AT 2:00PM AND 8:00PM

The critically acclaimed play Birth is based on BOLD founder/playwright Karen Brody's interviews with 118 mothers. With humor and passion, the piece celebrates the deep power that's available to every woman giving birth. Through this play mothers throughout the world have started being BOLD, believing that their bodies rock and they've taken control of their births. The play Birth has given voice to the story of childbirth as told by mothers, an experience that previously had not been given any theatrical attention. Through the play and all the highly commitment BOLD communities who have produced the play in hundreds of locations around the world since 2006 a deeper consciousness around childbirth issues has emerged and contributed to the conversation around improving childbirth for women. Today the play Birth has reached over 100,000 people and raised nearly 1 million dollars to improve childbirth.
