I.D. Festival — A.R.T. of Human Rights


Monday, January 30, 2017, 7:30pm to 9:30pm


OBERON 2 Arrow St, Cambridge, MA 02138

Screening of My Prairie Home with Discussion
Featuring Rae Spoon, NIC Kay, and others
Moderated by Tim McCarthy

Embark on an exploration through the documentary-musical screening of My Prairie Home, in which indie singer Rae Spoon takes us on a playful, meditative and at times melancholic journey. Set against majestic images of the infinite expanses of the Canadian prairies — interviews, performances, and music sequences reveal Spoon’s inspiring process of building a life of their own, as a trans person and as a musician.

Tim McCarthy will then moderate a discussion with Spoon and performance artist NIC Kay about accessibility, process, creation, and the challenges ahead for trans and queer artists.


Presented in conversation with A.R.T.’s production of Trans Scripts, the I.D. Festival series celebrates the diverse experiences of the trans community, explores issues of gender identity, and continues OBERON’s engagement with trans artists and stories. See more I.D. Festival events here!
