Performance of Transgendered Seeking...
Description of this performance:
Jimmy is trying to quit romance, cold turkey. An exposing, funny and tender look at queer relationships including run-ins with the polyamory police, online dating mishaps, and how relationship scripts and bigger political systems like policing and prisons affect our relationships. Transgender Seeking… includes clever unconventional use of multimedia. Jimmy is trying to quit romance, cold turkey, so he’s joined your Romance-aholics Anonymous group. Since the break-up, he’s been trying to prove that he’s “Great! Fine! Never been better!” His secret comforts include watching cheesy old black and white romance films – but don’t tell his radical friends… An exposing, funny and tender look at queer relationships, the bold visions we have and the often hilarious struggles in living up to them. Run-ins with the polyamory police about jeolousy. Online dating mishaps. How relationship scripts and bigger political systems like policing and prisons affect our relationships. Transgender Seeking… includes clever unconventional use of multimedia projections.
