From Donna Macomber, Director of the Women’s Freedom Center in Brattleboro, VT:
“Tim Collins inhabits performance brilliantly, getting right down to the truth-telling about critical social issues. I was deeply moved by his character’s exploration of consent. It wasn’t simply the word choice, but perhaps more importantly the emotion with which that piece was delivered. I hadn’t expected to be moved to tears, to feel the power of his work in the “thump” of my heart, hadn’t expected to feel entirely befriended through perspective and passion by an ally in ending sexual violence. It gave me a tidal wave of hope.
Tim allows his audience to see and feel all the way to the core as barriers are removed and blinders tugged off. Being “shown,” rather than lectured to, allows each audience member to grapple with intimate perspective on complex issues. His performances are emotionally and intellectually accessible, for which we, his audience members, owe him a sincere, universal bow. I am certain that Tim Collins’ voice will be instrumental in shifting us all towards a more humane and effective conversation about rape, consent, responsibility, and respect.”
