The Broadwater Main Stage
1076 Lillian Way, Central LA, Los Angeles
“The more you know of your history, the more liberated you are.” -Maya Angelou
History—for transgender people—has been largely erased or unrecorded. Though we have existed throughout all of the time, through every land. We know this because we can feel…them—our transcestors. We can feel their joy, their pain, and their power in the deepest part of ourselves. A knowing, without knowing, that we are only here because of them.
Based on true accounts, Tales from the Transcestors is an interpretive first-time live telling of transgender stories across history. A multi-genre experience inclusive of music, poetry, and one-acts, 6 artists of intersectional transgender experience bring their interpretation of these stories to the stage.
