ReconFIGUREd @ University Settlement
We live in our bodies. They enable us, constrain us, and sometimes define us. As women and trans people our bodies are the objects of much attention, discussion, politics and more. Through the journeys of 12 people, ReconFIGUREd examines the body with a fresh eye, and unveils the realities of what it means to live in and with female and trans bodies.

After sold out runs of ReconFIGUREd at The Tank in January 2017, Honest Accomplice Theatre (HAT) returns to the stage with a revised and updated version of this popular show. ReconFIGUREd began development in 2015 when HAT distributed a survey taken by 1,200 people and learned the body ranked as the number one topic people would like to see explored on stage. In 2016 HAT hosted over 20 free community brainstorming workshops to hear what topics and issues are important to highlight in their show. The Honest Accomplice ensemble has been generating original material and rehearsing the piece for over one year to create a show that explores the body from multiple perspectives and backgrounds.
