Changing Skins: Tales about Gender, Identity and Humanity with Milbre Burch

Please join co-producers, Cheryl Cofield and Pearl Alexander, for the third annual Transformative Narratives Storytelling Crawl from October 26-29, 2020. During this immersive six-event series, renowned, nationally touring storytellers Milbre BurchSonny Kelly, and Lani Peterson will offer virtual, one-person performances and tantalizing story-related workshops. In addition, a host of powerful international, national, local, and Georgia Tech storytellers will take center “stage” to help audiences enhance self-awareness, increase cultural competence, and connect through the sharing of diverse identities, experiences, and perspectives.

All events are virtual, free, and open to faculty, staff, students, and invited guests from around the globe. 

Drawing upon contemporary stories, sociology, science, folklore, and folkways, this one-woman performance explores a myriad of stories about the fluidity of gender, reminding us that cultural traditions often shape gender identity and performance, and that humans have long been interested in the continuum between “he” and “she.” Talk-Back and provocative dialogue following performance.

Note: There are two different sessions being held at 1 p.m. and 2:45 p.m., not repeat performances. Feel free to register for one or both sessions!
