A disciple on a pilgrimage spends the night with strangers and tells stories of gender and sexual minorities in the Bibles. As the narrator reveals the many gender non-conforming Bible characters, this one has to decide if a more personal disclosure brings death or life?
Queer Bible scholar and performance artist, Peterson Toscano, plays multiple characters to breath life into ancient stories. By unearthing the stories of gender-variant people in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, Toscano’s one-person film presents multiple characters with an array of genders.
NOTE: If you are reviewing this work, please also look at the lecture version. The lecture includes performance and gives all the details behind the stories. Both versions appear on the Transfigurations DVD or streaming on Amazon. For more info visit and a free study guide visit: meetinghouse.xyz
Using his skills as an an actor and playwright, Peterson Toscano created a full performance version of Transfigurations. The narrator, a disciple of Jesus, reveals a Bible characters in all of their diversity of gender. Bit by by the story of the narrator unfolds. Gorgeously filmed. It serves as an excellent compliment to the Transfigurations performance lecture or as a stand-alone performance.
