CHICAGO – The issue of gender identity, especially for those who are born with a vagueness as to what to call themselves between/beyond boy and girl, has come front and center in the U.S., both with the legalization of gay marriage and the callous repudiation of identity by trying to pass laws dismissing it (the North Carolina “bathroom” laws). The performance companies of The Living Canvas and Nothing Without a Company is currently staging “[Trans]formation,” which presents gender identity art by six performers, who perform most of the play in the nude.

Here is “The Runaways” plot description:
“The Runaways” follows two friends – Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) – as they rise from rebellious southern California kids to rock stars of the now-legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. They fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon) who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits.
With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself and so do its two leads. Joan is the band’s pure rock ’n roll heart while Cherie (with her Bowie-Bardot looks) is the sex kitten.
