This Boat Called My Body
What are the troubled waters that young people navigate when seeking abortions? Who and what helps sail them there?  

THIS BOAT CALLED MY BODY, a new play on abortion access opens in May!

May 31st-June 3rd, June 7th-10th, June 14th-17th
Thursdays-Saturdays @ 5:30 PM
Sundays @ 2 PM
at Palmisano Park (2700 S Halsted St, Chicago, IL 60608)

Directed by Quenna Lené Barrett + Nik Zaleski
Written by Quenna Lené Barrett, Christabel Donkor, Danielle Littman, Jessamyn Fitzpatrick, Clair Fuller, + Nik Zaleski
Produced by Catherine Miller  

Centering on stories of young people in Illinois who have terminated pregnancies, THIS BOAT CALLED MY BODY seats audiences in the metaphor for the islands that youth have to visit to get unfettered access to abortion. Through spectacle, dance, opera, and interaction with water, THIS BOAT CALLED MY BODY asks us to better understand what reproductive access looks like for all.

Sliding scale ticket options are available on a first come, first serve basis, with free tickets for young people age 22 & under. Get your tickets now!

The play is being performed in partnership with the Chicago Parks District outside at Palmisano Park. Please dress for the weather.  

We are seeking volunteers to exchange free tickets for performance support. Email if you are interested.
