'Sex Signals' Coming to NMU

Friday 21, 2015

Sex Signals, an unorthodox sexual assault awareness program that combines education with humor and improvisation, is coming to Northern Michigan University. The program has been presented at campuses nationwide.

A two-person team of qualified educators will take the audience on an interactive, relevant, and often-humorous exploration of beliefs, behaviors, and gender stereotypes related to dating and sexual interaction. Then, through several semi-improvisational scenes, and one that depicts a rapist describing a rape, the program reaches out to students who have mislabeled coercion as consent, with the hope of changing behaviors and encouraging bystander intervention.

The show begins at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 28, in 1100 Jamrich Hall. It is free and open to the public. NMU’s PrimeTime Productions is sponsoring the Catharsis Productions presentation.
