Audience member feedback is vital to the ongoing development of Living Lotus Project. PHOENIX RISING shares stories of violence against young women with mainstream audiences. After each performance, Living Lotus Project collects outcome data to evaluate the efficacy of a theater-based model of arts education for the purpose of responding to and preventing violence against girls and women.
In 2014, Living Lotus Project conducted staged readings of the play PHOENIX RISING, by Laura Gosheff, in two separate theaters for adult general audiences. Two cohorts consisted of a total of 130 theatergoers, representing a 77% response rate.
Female and male survey participants ranged in age from 20 to 65 years old.
Survey data shows PHOENIX RISING is an effective vehicle to inspire advocacy for girls and women enduring abuse.
