Ayla Sullivan, the Communications Coordinator for the Gender and Sexuality Center at University of Colorado Boulder as well as Denver's current reigning Youth Poet Laureate and Naropa University MFA Contemporary Performance candidate K. Woodzick are collaborating to dramatize the narratives of trans and gender non-conforming theatre artists in order to distill them into a script, titled "Trans/Actions," which Woodzick will be directing at the inaugural Theatre Made in Boulder Festival at noon on Sunday, February 4th.
Our cast will be primarily be comprised of trans performers sourced from CU Boulder, Out Boulder County and Phoenix, Colorado's Trans Community Choir, who will also perform an opening number.

Our audacious goal is that the staged reading and subsequent online video of the performance will spark a national dialogue about how the American theatre industry can swiftly implement practices to be more inclusive of gender diversity. The mentor for this project is Leigh Fondakowski, who was the head writer of "The Laramie Project."
