Super Powers! is a performative slide show focusing on the intersections of my 2 life long obsessions; Womanhood – having people recognize and accept my actual gender, and Super-Powers – I want them so bad, but which one? There are so many great ones. Ultimately the piece focuses on the choice between Shapeshifting and Telepathy. One would help me present a fluid gender identity based on my evolving needs, and the other would give me a tremendous advantage in communicating and combating transphobia, but at what cost?
Super Powers! is a funny, dark and honest look at subjects both frivolous and serious. The script was first written as a spoken word piece to be performed on Tranzister Radio. It was later adapted into a slide show and performed at Cafe Concrét #12, The School of Making Thinking and Trans Women’s Arts Toronto.
