WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In the brand-new solo show Overheard, Traber embodies 18 characters on a subway ride across New York City, where pre-conceptions of gender are challenged and redefined. Public and private collide as strangers encounter an unconventional individual who challenges their fundamental ideas of what it means to be female, to be Black, and to be an artist. Through hauntingly honest character monologue, personal narrative, dance, and song, Traber, with director Sara Lyons, asks how the smallest moments of personal choice can define our experience in a world of predetermined roles. With style, poetry, wit, and courage, Overheard dares to expose a universe of complexity in a single body.
