LECTURE: Gender in Performance[open air]
by Stephen Davidson
Juni 15 @ 18:00 - 19:00kostenlos
We perform gender for each other every day in our lives, demonstrating how masculine or feminine we are, and deciding together what those ideas are. What happens when we do this consciously on stage? What do we learn about ourselves when we start to examine our choices? As a transgender performer, Stephen has played every gender role in the book. Come along for an informal discussion about gender performance from a unique perspective.
Stephen Davidson is the Artistic Director of Improvable, QI: Queer Improv, Carmen: A gender-swapped Film Noir Fantasy, and co-director of Zeal: The Pride Improv Festival. He currently also plays with The Verbs, musical house team of the Nursery theatre, in Castles in the Air, an improvised Studio Ghibli film, and in duo The Happiest People in the World with Erick Castellan. Stephen teaches improv through Improvable and the Nursery Theatre, and is also a diversity officer for Hoopla Improv.
He loves improv and is one of the world’s most cheerful people when playing or teaching. When coaching and directing improv he prides himself on creating a positive environment so that players can perform at their best. Stephen likes his improv like he likes his partners; silly, clever, and emotionally connected. Stephen has studied improv through i/o Chicago, The Nursery, Annoyance, UCB, Hoopla, The Maydays, Music Box, Showstoppers, City Academy, Imprology, and with many visiting artists including Dave Razowsky, Bill Arnett, Tim Sozko, Heather Anne Campbell, Deanna Fleysher, and Lydia Hensler.
