Thanks for your patience as RebeccaKling.com gets a makeover!
Rebecca Kling is a transgender artist and educator who explores gender and identity through solo pieces and educational workshops. Her multidisciplinary performances incorporate conversational storytelling, personal narrative, humor, movement, video projection, and more. Kling takes the position that sharing accessible queer narrative with a wide audience is a form of activism, and that understanding combats bigotry. She regularly tours to colleges, universities, and theatre festivals across the country. In 2013, Kling was named to the inaugural Trans 100 List which celebrates excellence in the trans community. In 2014, Kling was named as one of the Guild Literary Complex's 25 Writers to Watch.

August 29 - September 7 - Something Something New Vagina at the 2014 Chicago Fringe Festival - Exact dates and times TBA
Something Something New Vagina is a solo performance about loving one's self and one's body. It's also about a vagina: Rebecca Kling's fancy new vagina. Kling was last seen at Chicago Fringe in 2013 with Get Ready For The Vagina Fairy; now she's back (she was never one to call it clits) and is ready to tackle issues of identity without ovary-acting. Climaxing with a Strip Q&A, you'd be doing yourself a dis-cervix if you miss it.
