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 plot description for “Beautiful Boy”:
“Beautiful Boy” is an unconventional love story that explores the journey of a married couple on the verge of separation. They must turn to each other to overcome unimaginable heartbreak as well as brave the intense media scrutiny following their son’s shocking act of violence. Bill (Michael Sheen) and Kate’s (Maria Bello) already strained marriage is tested as they realize all they have left with each other is their shared grief and confusion along with the unfortunate legacy of their son.
While they struggle numbly through the media onslaught and the awkward pity from relatives and friends, the life-altering event forces Bill and Kate to face their feelings of guilt, rage, blame, self-discovery and ultimately hope so they can finally see each other and their chance for happiness again with clear eyes.
