Some Other Mirror

Some Other Mirror

Gender is calling, and this time, it’s a video conference.

‘Some Other Mirror’ is an autobiographical solo show that explores a gender identity crisis, in the high-pressure isolation of the COVID lockdown. It uses Zoom to dramatize the performer’s fight to come to terms with being a trans man, with other versions of himself appearing in his bedroom as argumentative, and advisory, video callers. The show touches on the transmasculine experience of feminism, internalised transphobia, self-love, self-hatred, and self-actualization.

Laurie Owen is an independent artist and improviser, based in Nottingham. He trained in Theatre And Performance at The University of Leeds, teaches and performs improvisation with MissImp: Improv Comedy Theatre, and works as an Applied Improvisation practitioner. Laurie has a love for performances with a DIY ethos, and enjoys finding ways to create dramatic aesthetics with unlikely technologies.
