REBEL IN VENUS is a live-show and workshop series, with a mission to heal ourselves from sexual traumas, while reclaiming our bodies! REBEL IN VENUS was created by Marissa Alma Nick in 2017, beginning as a live-show and eventually grew into an entire movement of rebel goddesses! Through its performances, workshop-series and book ; the goal of REBEL IN VENUS is to access dance and comedy as forms of therapy, and bring a greater awareness to rape-culture, in hopes of ending it, once and for all. All the while learning to utilize movement as a tool to heal from our sexual traumas, with an empowered and unapologetic frame of mind. And please note that REBEL IN VENUS is for everyone, no matter your gender identity or sexual preference, because it's about learning to heal through unity. So please join us, and rebel today!
"REBEL IN VENUS was originally inspired by a book "Healing Sex" by Staci Haines, which taught me how to heal myself by liberating and re-claiming ownership of my sexuality. So I started creating REBEL IN VENUS to try and work through my own traumas, and then #metoo took off, and it began to feel like being a part of something even bigger. It made me realize how brave we can be together, and how much power there is in finally talking about it. REBEL IN VENUS stands in solidarity with the all of those marching for their voice, and the freedom to own their bodies. It supports those telling their stories and those who aren't ready. It's here for you right now, or for whenever its your time. But if I can do one thing for all of you with REBEL IN VENUS, it is to empower you. Empower you to demand to be seen as fully human, and most importantly, an agent of our own sexuality without ever apologizing for it. I urge you to stand strong in your body & never give up!" - Marissa Alma Nick
