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 “Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest”:
“Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest” is a documentary film directed by Michael Rapaport about one of the most influential and groundbreaking musical groups in hip-hop history.
Having released five gold- and platinum-selling albums within eight years, A Tribe Called Quest has been one of the most commercially successful and artistically significant musical groups in recent history. They’re regarded as iconic pioneers of hip hop. The band’s sudden break-up in 1998 shocked the industry and saddened its scores of fans whose appetite for the group’s innovative musical stylings never seems to diminish.
