Songs of #MeToo—A Prelude of Change
Documentary Songwriters and the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center
7pm, Friday August 7, 2020
Six women from across the U.S. have co-written songs from their stories of sexual misconduct and domestic violence. In this program, these songs are performed by up-and-coming artists.
“Songs of #MeToo—A Prelude of Change” pairs these songs with the preludes to Bach’s Cello Suites. As the women represented here find their voices through song, the cello finds its voice through Bach’s preludes. This program is a journey of discovery and becoming.
This workshop features a collaboration between DocSong teaching artists and refugees from Africa and the Middle East. This workshop was made possible by a grant from the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp’s Arts in Society Program.

The songs in this project come from people from contrasting cultures, such Iraq, the United Kingdom, and the Côte d’Ivoire. What the songs may reveal is grace and strength. Each song feels like an unanticipated treasure. This project was made possible by a private donation.
