Screenings of socially conscious art, a talk by the artist Anya Pearson and a panel discussion, which ask the question: How do we heal from trauma?

Anya Pearson is an accomplished actress, playwright, poet, producer and activist living and working in Portland.

Anya’s latest work in development is Made to Dance in Burning Buildings, a fusion of poetry, narrative, dance, visual art, and film about sexual violence. The showcase production of Made to Dance in Burning Buildings recently played to a sold-out house at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater in New York City. NY Theatre Critic, Anthony J. Piccione, called it a “standout.” The world premiere of the full play of Made to Dance in Burning Buildings will premiere February 2019 at Shaking the Tree in Portland.
Anya’s latest piece, Above a Whisper, is a fusion of poetry, narrative, dance, visual art, and film about Sexual Harassment. An excerpt of this full length piece debuted at Shaking the Tree’s SALT in May 2018 in Portland, Oregon. She is also co-producing the documentary, Forever Bruised But Not Broken, which follows the development of the play as well as her passionate quest to empower other survivors.

Anya is the inaugural winner of the prestigious $10,000 Voice is a Muscle Grant from the Corporeal Voices Foundation ran by best-selling author Lidia Yuknavitch. As an actress, she has appeared in numerous regional theater productions as well as independent films. She is a proud member of Actors Equity Association. Her poems have been published in the literary journals Elohi Gadugi and M Review. Her poem, The Accomplice was also featured in the BaseRoots Theatre Company main stage show, My Soul Grown Deep, which she also co-produced. She is a graduate of the prestigious two-year program at the William Esper Studio in New York City where she studied acting with Terry Knickerbocker. She is also a graduate of the writing program at Marylhurst University.

We Can Listen is funded in part by The Old Church Concert Hall and RACC and strives to build community, educate, and share the positive impact that truly listening to diverse voices can have on us all. Through a cultural intersection of storytelling, film, music, and personal expression we support individuals and grassroots organizations as they raise their voices on compelling social justice issues Portlanders have demonstrated are important to them. We hope these persona stories will reach audiences they havent reached before, and provide the opportunity, for all who hear them, to increase their understanding of issues that require action and awareness in our greater community.

Moderated by Grammy-nominated local recording artist and theatrical performer, Julianne R. Johnson, each We Can Listen event explores a topic of current, social, political, or environmental importance in an atmosphere of trust and respect for both speakers and audience alike.
