You’ve Changed: A Trans Creative and Contact Co-Production

So, let’s, face the music and dance…

It’s fourteen years since Kate transitioned and a lot has changed. However, where gender is concerned, are we still stuck in the dark ages? When there’s no rule book, sometimes you just have to write your own.

Through song, dance, hard-won wit and wisdom, You’ve Changed shines a light on the ins, outs, ups and downs of transitioning. Challenging the idea that genitals equal gender, Kate literally bares all, exploring what’s down there and what’s up here.

Kate’s changed: that’s clear, but what she really wants to know is, have you?

Performers: Kate O’Donnell, Sean Murray

Director: Mark Whitelaw

Choreographer: Lea Anderson

Musical Director: Steve Blake
