About the Event
RATING | PG-13
My project is a one-woman show exploring the different, yet merging and inseparable aspects of performing identity. Because of the intersecting nature of identity, my performance will attempt to encapsulate the issues that I, personally, am continually questioning, including gender, emotional, romantic, and physical expression.
The basic structure of my performance will consist of four acts, each act beginning with a different character reading from their diary.

This piece will ask the unsettling question of how these pieces of each person can exist simultaneously, and if they can, how we can actively and fully participate in the experience of our own identities.

After my performance I will ask audience members to respond to these questions in the form of sho
