September (Welcome back!)

the “Be BRAVE Gala

Saturday September 3rd  | 6pm in the Johnson Theatre

 

UNH alumna Lissa Curtis '13 is professional ballerina and rape survivor. She went to Romania in 2014 to the World Ballet Competition and was raped by her coach for ten days. She started the "Be Brave" campaign to encourage victims to come out of silence and fight for justice.

The "Be BRAVE Gala" will be an evening of classical and contemporary dance, live music, and martial arts. The evening will culminate with asking survivors of domestic and sexual violence onstage to be brave, be honored, and take a small step forward in their healing process. All proceeds will be going to three NH rape crisis centers: Crisis Center of Central New Hampshire (CCCNH), HAVEN, and UNH SHARPP.

The cast will include performances by Lissa Curtis, Zachary Silk (Lissa's brother), Northeastern Ballet Theatre, Quest Martial Arts Academy, Speaking In Taps, Dance Prism, SonDance Academy, Not Too Sharp, Jackie Klinger, Michelle LeClair, Shanna Pinet, and special guest artists from Boston Ballet, and American Ballet Theatre.

Lissa has a large following and has been interviewed by many news publications such as Boston Magazine, BuzzFeed News and many others. She expects this event to be sold out.

For more on her story visit www.lissacurtis.com and you can read about her in Boston Magazine here.

SHARPP hopes to see UNH staff, faculty, administration, students, and community there to support our alumna. Tickets can be purchased by clicking here.

SHARPP crisis center advocates will be available for confidential support during the event.
