Dealing With The Morning After at Covenant College
This Saturday, Covenant College will be exploring the topics of joy, pain, brokenness, desire, and love within the topic of sexuality. It is not a panel or lecture either, it is being discussed and portrayed through art.
Emma Shope is a student at Covenant College and she is passionate about cultivating the important conversation regarding sexuality and the tumult one experiences through mistakes and missteps in the realm of sex. The discussion, which is being presented through acting, dialogue, and song, is called The Morning After and it is not holding back.
Shope says the reason this conversation needs to be had through the medium of art is because of its “capability to present even the most unthinkable scenarios in a tangible, meaningful manner.” On college campuses, there is no debate; it is difficult to talk about sex, especially when it comes to conflicting situations. Everyone would rather just keep quiet. But Shope is refusing to do so.
She stated, “I just want them to think. To walk away talking, whether it is about the performance itself, about theater as a means of discussion, or about sexual brokenness… I want them to come with a mind and a heart to learn, to explore.”
The Morning After is a compelling and honest story woven together with dialogue, scene, and song. Come to Sanderson’s Auditorium on Covenant’s campus to join the discussion and get an honest look into the complicated, usually secretive experiences of sexuality.
