Hear Say: A Documentary Performance by Leila Goldstein ’14

Saturday, March 15, 2014 at 8:00pm

Warner Center 30 N. Professor Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

As Leila Goldstein ’14 puts on a set of headphones, she inhabits the words and worlds of women affected by the BRCA mutation, a genetic mutation which greatly increases a woman’s risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.  Based on interviews Goldstein conducted, the stories the women tell expose both the difficulties and fears linked to these cancers, but also how personal health issues intertwine with family secrets, generational differences, and divergent memories.  Complete with live original music by Valerie Perczek ('14), Hear Say is a verbatim style, solo performance full of the intimate, yet immediate visceral impact of documentary theater.
