Inspired by The Naked I: Monologues From Beyond The Binary by Tobias K. Davis, a production that explored the bodies and experiences of transgender, gender-queer, and intersex individuals (which 20% Theatre Company produced back in 2009) the company has created, and will continue to create and produce a new NAKED I production every two years that takes the idea of a monologue-based play to a new level and boldly explains and explores the land beyond 'male' and 'female'.
THE NAKED I: SELF-DEFINED explores queer and trans* experience through brand new, never before seen monologues, short scenes, movement pieces, spoken word poems, short film, and more - featuring the contributions of over 70 artists. Selections from this production will be presented as part of their National Tour!
