I write from Southampton where I have a performance tonight at the Uni, but tomorrow night, due to popular demand, I will return to London for a performance of Transfigurations–Transgressing Gender in the Bible.
(across from Pimlico Station)
London UK SW1V 9AL
Toscano is someone who has apparently trawled the Bible and attempted to find in it references to people who ‘do not fit the gender binary’. This sort of argument is not uncommon and anyone who had encountered it will know just how the desire to find such leads to a twisted and selective reading into the text of Scripture, yet sadly many who dismiss the plain teaching of Scripture seem enthralled by such perverse handling of the text.
Um, no. I have a feeling that most people who actually see the performance will see that I work well within accepted Bible interpretation. That said, even gay and lesbian Christians have confided that they initially came to the show with a high level of suspicion that they would see some over-the-top, wild interpretation. They confess that they experienced something quite different, a gentle unfolding of narrative that inspired them.
Do tell your London friends. You can see my complete schedule here.
