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 “The Collector” plot description:
For handyman and ex-con Arkin, a quiet home and a family on vacation is an “opportunity”. For inside his new employer’s country home lies a safe and inside the safe is a gem, which is his only hope for repaying a debt to his ex-wife and keeping what’s left of his family.
Unfortunately for Arkin, inside the house is also a box containing the latest addition to a collection catalogued in blood, bone and tears. As the seconds tick down to midnight, Arkin becomes a reluctant hero trapped by a masked “collector” in a maze of lethal invention – the Spanish Inquisition as imagined by Rube Goldberg – while trying to rescue the very family he came to rob.
From Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton – the twisted minds behind “Saw IV,” “Saw V” and the upcoming “Saw VI” – “The Collector” emerges as a real-time game of cat and mouse melding primal horror with suspense thriller. The film stars Josh Stewart, Daniella Alonso, Michael Reilly Burke, Andrea Roth, Madeline Zima, Karley Scott-Collins, Robert Wisdom and Juan Fernandez.
