The Cycle: Living A Taboo Forum
Friday, September 27, 2013

Length: 1 hr 30 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

What: The Cycle is the first independent public forum designed to honor and explore the hidden ramifications and bioethical considerations of infertility, assisted reproductive technologies and childlessness on individuals and society.

Why: While the global fertility industry heralds the birth of millions of babies born via in-vitro fertilization (I.V.F.) since 1978, The Cycle will acknowledge and bear witness to the long-term emotional tolls, traumas and risks associated with the millions more cycles that have resulted in failure over the last 35 years: 77 percent global failure rate in 2012 and nearly 70 percent in the United States in 2010.

This transformative 90-minute program aims to challenge conventional wisdom and foster a new, more open dialogue about infertility. The centerpiece of the Forum will be a remarkable series of vignettes and personal stories that reflect a gamut of emotions and insights and give voice to what has been a profoundly misunderstood human experience, expressed intellectually and creatively.

Ticket sales for this non-profit event are $30 per seat through September 20, $40 per seat hereafter.

Where: BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center - Theatre 2
199 Chambers between Greenwich and West Street (NYC)
