Ren Lunicke - "Ze": queer as f*ck!

Theatre / Comedy
CAN
Scaled  ze   queer as   vancouver
A solo genderqueer, kinky, femmesexual, polyminded, gay-divorcee comedic odyssey through the real life of Michelle/Ryan. 'Ze' (a gender neutral pronoun) rips the bandage away from zir puritanical upbringing in a multi-layered "coming out" process. Along the way ze discovers a beloved community that at times is just as ridiculous and pigeon-holed as the one ze's left. Michelle/Ryan both uses and parodies the labels meant to help an individual embrace their truth in a modern world desperate for definition. 'Ze' confronts stereotypes both within and without in a PRIDE-worthy celebration that exposes the complex tension between being authentic to oneself and belonging.
