New Performance Art Piece at DiverseWorks

From the website:

Scott Turner Schofield

Becoming a Man in 127 EASY Steps
Feb. 20 & 21, 2009
8pm
Commissioned by DiverseWorks with The Pat Graney Company,
7 Stages, and NPN
DiverseWorks Theater (Houston, TX)

Scott Turner Schofield puts his personal journey from female-bodied boy to butch girl to unrecognizable woman to man on display through his performance, Becoming a Man in 127 EASY Steps. Schofield has created a “Choose Your Own Adventure” solo play, where the audience chooses which of the 127 autobiographical stories he has developed. These stories, conveyed through storytelling, stand-up comedy, fantastical movement sequences and drag routines, explore Schofield’s transition from female to male, exploring his origins, childhood and young life as a transgender person. Sometimes funny, sometimes shocking in their frank emotional honesty, these wildly original theatrical performances last from 30 seconds to five minutes and give audiences a view into the many parts of a person that make up the whole.

I highly recommend a visit to the DiverseWorks website for a link to a sneak-preview video that is touching, poignant, sad, and brutally honest – probably a good sampling from what you’ll get with this show. I am unable to go but if you see the show, I’d like to hear what you think.

Here’s a YouTube promo clip featuring Scott Turner Schofield…
