Any Resemblance is a multidisciplinary narrative performance project following Maddy and Audrey, a queer interracial couple trying to have a baby. This performance is a single, stand-alone episode in the narrative.
Any Resemblance takes a frank, honest look at pregnancy and interracial relationships. It peels away the soft-focus romanticism of pregnancy and deals head-on with fears of birth complications, sexuality in pregnancy, and the difficulties of intimacy across racial constructs.
The performance is fifteen minutes long, followed by an optional talk-back.
This performance is for adults, and contains images that may disturb some children. There will be a room available in the house for older children to play quietly, and for younger children to be in with one parent while the other watches the performance. The house is very close to the fabulous Underhill Playground as well.
