Indy Fringe presents Five and a Half Feet of Fearsome, a comedy about mainstream media’s anxieties about transgender people.
Part militaristic recruitment meeting, part puppet show, part physical theatre, part confessional, and part stand-up comedy. Much like the trans community, Five and a Half Feet of Fearsome doesn’t fit neatly into one box. Genderqueer artist Shannon Savard invites you to accompany them in their mission to take on mainstream media’s anxieties surrounding transgender people, doctors, Judy Blume, and Bertha the Furious Uterus.
Audiences at Kansas City Fringe called it, “humorous, educational, engaging, athletic, and emotionally moving” and “just the sort of thing one hopes to see at the Fringe Festival.”
Performances: Friday, Aug. 23, 9:00pm, Saturday, Aug. 24, 6:00pm, Sunday, Aug. 25. 1:30pm at the Indy Eleven Theatre, 719 W. St. Clair St. Indianapolis.
