On January 26 & 27, 2024, our Healing Bells team will perform
"Ni una más" at the Arthur Miller Theatre, 7:30 p.m.
Our Healing Bells team of musicians, actors, and dancers will perform “Ni una más,”
world-premiere trailblazing productions in which we partner
with survivors to tell their stories of agency
and foster collective healing via the arts.
A trailblazing world premiere production, “Ni una más” features artists and survivors who braid music, theatre, dance and poetry to tell their stories of growing agency. From the tender “Te recuerdo” (I remember you) to the rumbling subway sounds of “Metro Asfixia;” from the heartbreaking lullaby for missing Venezuelan young women to the foot-stomping chorus, “It’s Not My Fault,” this audience-engaging production is both mesmerizing and memorable.
Our award-winning production team of Ana Ávila, journalist; Alexandria Davis, dance choreographer; Antonio Disla, theatre practitioner; and Pamela Ruiter-Feenstra, composer partnered with survivors to create new material for “Ni una más.”
As gender-based violence is a local and global health crisis, we move this often-silenced topic to the spotlight to transform trauma into healing power through the arts.
This event is made possible via funding from the U-M Arts Initiative and IRWG.
Healing Bells: where stories & music meet
At Healing Bells, our journalists and artists collaborate to tell underreported stories of social injustices via music, dance, art, and film. Our projects center on the tenacity of people forced to migrate, despite inequities they face; humanitarian crises in Venezuela; democracies dismantled in Belarus, Venezuela, Haiti, and Kashmir; standing up to gender-based violence in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the U.S.; and the aftermath of gun violence in U.S. schools. We've developed journalistically sound and artistically engaging practices to reveal the agency, resilience and gifts of people who have been marginalized. Through our innovative cross-disciplinary collaborations, workshops, and concerts, we open a path to healing via the arts.
