How Do You Read Me?
June 3, 2022 @ 10:00 pm - 11:30 pm CDT
What’s in a name? When you claim an identity – Gay – Straight – Bi – Trans – do others see what you see, fee
l, who you are? What about homelessness or political affiliation? Too often we judge people by how they look, dress, walk, talk and superficial characteristics. Too often they don’t see you and their misreading of who you are makes for messy and sometimes tragic consequences. Suppose you are a homeless kid who has been taken off the street by a drag queen. What changes? Suppose you are a member of a religious order and find out that your roommate is Gay. Are you Gay by association? Do you “out” him?
In “How Do You Read Me?” storytellers Howard Lieberman and Loren Niemi look to their experience with gender fluidity, representation and the assumptions we make about others with intimate and revealing stories that are by turns insightful and questioning of those assumptions of what it means to be “other” in America. This show looks to the people underneath the surface.
Having performed together for over two decades now, the 2 Lorens have examined issues of race in “1967”, religion in “A Fool’s Errand”, and the ironies of sex and drugs in their wildly improvisational “55 Minutes of Sex, Drugs and Audience Participation.” They are not afraid to tell their stories truthfully and artfully while finding the humor and grace of being human.
