Coming between Memorial Day and the start of Pride Month, ARMOR AS STRONG will feature a group of actors from New York's trans/gender non-conforming community performing speeches and short scenes featuring some of Shakespeare's best known soldiers. The performance will be followed by a town hall conversation about society's understanding of gender identity, and how our limitations can lead to broken and inhumane policies. It will ask: What truly makes a soldier? Why are names and pronouns so vitally important? How can visibility in art be a catalyst for change?
Performers include C Bain (he/him), Izzy Castaldi (they/them), Bowie Dunwoody (they/them), Elliot Frances Flynn (they/them), Jordan Ho (she, her, xe/xem/xyr), Dani Martineck (they/them), Teddy Qin (they/them), and Marcus Xavier Stewart (they/them). ARMOR AS STRONG is curated by Cristina Lundy (she/her), Taylor Marie Rasmussen (they/them), and Ross Williams (he/him).
