Glass Washrooms is a deeply moving and personal account of NIUBOI's life growing up, coming out, and living now as trans non-binary. Visibility in public spaces can be unnerving for gender non-conforming humans, but NIUBOI chooses to be neither passing nor quiet. Glass Washrooms combines storytelling, site generic theatre, and dance to make public the private transformation a meek young girl into a strong, powerful androgyne. Glass Washrooms will encourage the audience to think about the need for gender inclusive washrooms, see trans people as relatable and human, and celebrate non-binary identities. Glass Washrooms was originally presented at Found Fest with the support of Common Ground Arts Society, The Edmonton Arts Council, and The City of Edmonton. Glass Washrooms at The Chinook Series has been made possible by the Nordic and Cloutier Award for Innovation.
