Performance Schedule Feb & Mar 2007

Okay, I have some more presentation dates I am ready to announce.

I’m thrilled about my fourth year presenting at the True Colors Conference. This year I will present two new workshops with a new collaborative performance piece called Dragged Out of the Spiritual Closet. The piece will explore the spirituality of several queer folks (including Earthel and Chad). I am writing and performing it with Momma aka Worthie Mecham, a female impersonator and Christian speaker from LA.
(Oh and Elliot will also present a workshop at TC this year too!)

Now that I premiered The Re-Education of George W. Bush, I have begun to research and write my next play TransfigurationsExploring the Gender Diaspora, a theater piece about trans, genderqueer and gender-different people in the Bible. I will weave the real life stories of trans folks with Bible characters who lived outside of traditional gender roles (there are many of them–you’d be surprise).

    Hi Peterson! Strange coincidence…I heard you on the “Whosoever” podcast from November just last week, then this morning I saw your comment after mine at another blog, Two Worlds Collide…so I’m assuming God wants me to tell you to come perform in Texas!

    I was excited to hear about Transfigurations…hope you’ll keep us up to date on it. And hurry, because the church need it, and bad.

    Take care!

    Um, okay Grace, I think you made your point. 🙂

    Now liadan, you can make a show happen nearer to you. Have any contacts at universities, churches, community centers, etc who might be interested in having me come and do a show? Let me know and we will follow-up.

    So often these performances get booked because someone in the community suggested it. Many places don’t respond well to random requests from performers. They get them all the time and simply don’t reply in most cases.

    alyssia! I love those random encounters. How cool.

    Now about Texas, nothing anywhere near certain, but there is a very slight chance I will have a show in Denton sometime in the near future. Talk to the gig gods and see what they can pull off. (btw one of the gods is named Heath.)
