Nothing Without a Company and The Living Canvas are presenting the world premiere of [Trans]formation, devised by Ronen Kohn, Darling Squire, Avi Roque, Kevin Sparrow and Gaby Labotka, with Labotka directing.
[Trans]formation is devised entirely from the works of, and performed by, transgender, genderqueer, intersex and non-binary artists. Designed and directed in the style of The Living Canvas, nude performers aim to embody the expressive power and diversity of the human form clothed by projections to reveal, instead of conceal, every body's possibility. [Trans]formation utilizes text, dance, movement, music and the textures of projections to explore the naked truth of gender identity.
The show runs from Nov. 17-Dec. 17 at The Vault at Collaboraction Studios in the Flat Iron Arts Building, 1579 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Previews will take place Nov. 15-16 at 8 p.m. Regular performances run on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 7 p.m.
