The play explores how tangled and complicated the relationship between sexuality and truth can be in the wake of #MeToo
Geothe-Institut Bangladesh in partnership with HerStory Foundation will host a digital circle reading of ‘WHEN I SAY YES’ a play by German journalist and philosopher Carolin Emcke in English on November 25 at 7pm on the free digital conferencing platform ZOOM.
The event is open to an adult audience upon registration and the text will be provided.
In a searching exploration of her own experiences, social habits, music, and literature, Carolin Emcke reveals how tangled and complicated the relationship between sexuality and truth can be in the wake of #MeToo.
The #MeToo debates have launched a conversation on sexuality and exploitation that is only just beginning. They have raised urgent questions: which pictures and notions shape our ideas of desire and revulsion? How can we uncover and prevent violence? How are structures and norms created into which men, and women, and everyone else must fit? Who is silenced, who remains powerless? How can desire and sexuality be expressed fully – without sacrificing their ambiguity?
Carolin Emcke is a German author, journalist and philosopher. She studied philosophy, politics, history in London, Frankfurt and Harvard. From 1998 - 2013 she reported from conflict and crisis zones including Kosovo, Pakistan, Iraq, Gaza and Heiti. She is the recipient of multiple awards for her literary works.
