QUEER SPAWN

written and performed by
kira meyers-guiden

This one person show, currently being workshopped with Pat the Dog Theatre Creation is a compilation of stories about growing up as a second generation queer spawn (lesbian born of lesbians).
“The piece strives to normalize my parents and I while acknowledging the differences (and homophobic) truths in our experience as a family. Queer Spawn is about claiming space that is too often taken up by the nuclear family and showcasing how great my moms are. With this piece, I hope to normalize my family while highlighting the micro-aggressions I hear in everyday conversation.”

OUTFEST

THEATRE FESTIVAL CELEBRATING
queer stories and characters

 OutFest is an annual festival that takes place in Waterloo Region. The festival supports the creation and development of new work by providing a platform for emerging queer playwrights/artists to experiment and showcase their work. The festival features several one-act plays and movement-theatre pieces. Those selected will have the opportunity to join our workshops in fall which will be facilitated by professional queer artists.

 

what we do

Producing and presenting live theatrical and interdisciplinary works that push and explore our understanding of identity. We work to acknowledge how one's personal identity is shaped by its community, and how these identities are intertwined.
