In Leslie Lissaint’s premiere solo show she combines spoken word poetry, contemporary movement and live music 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. The show demonstrates the power of the body to tell the truth in order to fully embody freedom.
