Based on the themes of One Billion Rising REVOLUTION, the two hour celebration, FLY THE SPIRIT REVOLUTION: 1BR@Sapienza, will use performing arts as the method to raise consciousness and suggest solutions : I. to STOP violence against women and girls and to demand justice for those who are victimized. II. to acknowledge that the 1BR objective of NON-VIOLENCE against women has expanded to include all gender violence AND III. to demand justice for the environment and to stop the “rape” of Mother Earth ! La Sapienza will rise to the DRUM BEAT AND THE REVOLUTION on a world class scale through CREATIVE dialogue, theater, poetry, music, and DANCE! culminating in a MASSIVE “BREAK THE CHAIN” FLASHMOB on the stairs of the Rettorato.
