True tales from the Far East will make their way to Gainesville through Encounters of Hope, an interpretive dance performance in conjunction with Rahab’s Rope and Chaddah Dance Company. The performance will showcase real stories of coerced prostitution, “and a few child marriages, of girls 8 or 9 (years old),” Rahab’s Rope founder Vicki Moore said. Rahab’s Rope seeks to rescue women and girls who have been forced into prostitution or sex-trafficking by giving them a skill or trade to better their lives.
