In My Body is groaning, bitching, laughing, exploring and revealing TRUTHS through...SONG, SPOKEN WORD, MOVEMENT, ART. COVERING and UNCOVERING gender identity, infertility, bullying, pride, aging, obesity, trauma, self-loathing, disability, passion, sexuality, love and so much more. CHALLENGING ALL OF US TO embrace who we are and open our hearts to others.
For this world premiere production, I worked closely with encaustic painter Leah Macdonald to transform her artworks into scenery. Creating large-scale encaustic pieces together, we created an all-encompassing environment in the black-box space of Philadelphia's Prince Theatre.
