Glass Washrooms

 

a moving personal story set in a gendered washroom

45 minute solo performance

Visibility in public spaces can be unnerving for gender non-conforming humans, but NIUBOI chooses to be neither passing nor quiet. Glass Washrooms combines storytelling, site generic theatre, and dance to make public the private transformation a meek young girl into a strong, powerful androgyne. Glass Washrooms will encourage the audience to think about the need for gender inclusive washrooms, see trans people as relatable and human, and celebrate non-binary identities.
