In Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender she performs Romeo, Hamlet, Richard III, Shylock and more, while exploring her growing awareness of her father’s life as a Holocaust survivor, WWII war hero and Nazi resistance fighter. Her work speaks towards liberation from the "gender box" of expectations, and offers a unique and powerful perspective of courage, resilience and hope against her family's troubled background of war, sickness, suicide and despair.
