Devised by Ronen Kohn, Darling Squire, Avi Roque, Gaby Labotka, and Kevin Sparrow. Directed by Gaby Labotka
[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 embody the expressive power and diversity of the human form under evocative projections to reveal, instead of conceal, every body's beautiful possibility. [Trans]formation explores the naked truth of gender identity. It is a collaboration of Nothing Without a Company and The Living Canvas. Join us after each performance for an optional opportunity for audience participation and a discussion with the cast about the show and the issues.
EXPLORE THE NAKED TRUTH OF GENDER IDENTITY.

In times like these, shows like [Trans]formation matter, and Nothing without a Company and Living Canvas have produced a piece of theatre that is desperately and urgently needed." Jessie Bond, Chicago Splash Magazine
