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’s the “American Teen” plotline:
“American Teen” is the touching and hilarious Sundance hit that follows the lives of five teenagers – the jock, the princess, the heartthrob, the rebel and the geek – in one small town in Indiana through their senior year of high school.
