Break the Silence-Watch the Cracked Mirrors Theater tour in Denmark
I just found out about Stairway Foundation in the Philippines, their project for marginalized children in the Philippines and their campaign against sex trafficking is remarkable. Visit their website and learn about their project and learn how the sexually abused children’s pain and sufferings through their trilogy cartoon film which is available in DVD and though the theater which right now in Denmark and at the same time promoting the third part of the trilogy the Red Leaves Falling.
Child sexual abuse and exploitation is determined by and is a result of demand for sex with children and access to pornographic images of children on the Internet. A significant portion of the demand lies within the Western world. After a successful premiere held last June 2 in Manila, Red Leaves Falling, Stairway’s third animated film about child pornography and child sex trafficking, will make its European debut alongside ”Cracked Mirrors,” a long-running theatre piece that portrays the deep pain and suffering children and young people go through as a result of sexual abuse and sexual exploitataition.
In collaboration with Roedkilde Gymnasium, Stairway Danmark, Kildenothilfe and private sponsors, the Break the Silence Campaign will feature in Denmark, Germany and Belgium. Danish International Development Assistance (Danida) is the main sponsor of the tour.
Cracked Mirror is a monolugue of sexually abused children. It portrays the pain and sufferings of the victims and the effects in their very young lives.
Cracked mirror is a project of Stairway Foundation which is based in the Philippines and was founded by Lars Jorgensen and American Monica Ray. The play is directed by Monica Ray.
