Centering true stories of young people in Illinois who have terminated pregnancies, ?This Boat Called My Body? seats audiences in a metaphor of islands that youth must navigate to access abortion. Through spectacle, dance, opera, and interaction with water, this original play by For Youth Inquiry Performance Company invites audiences to embody that "community is compassionate participation" (NewCity, Recommended) and asks us to better understand what reproductive access looks like for all. For ages 14+. This event is presented as a part of the City of Chicago?s Year of Chicago Theatre. Check out more YOCT events at
