Meg Bashwiner

Meg will be presenting 10 short pieces of non illusory personal storytelling performed in a random order chosen by the audience. Throughout the piece, X factors will be randomly added that change the rules of performance and challenge the performer creating an unknown and experimental outcome.   Non illusory theater contains no fourth wall and no pretense. The actions on stage are really happening. The stories are true. The moment of performance is the setting. The pieces consist of monologue, dance, games, and engagement with the audience that tackles current issues through the lens of comedy and personal honesty.  My work is feminist and intersectional, it does not rely on XX chromosomes to define the feminine. It simply relies on one that all humans share.
