[World Premiere] Ashley R.T. Yergens: prettygirl264264
prettygirl264264 is a premature funeral for critically unclaimed artist Ashley R.T. Yergens and an extremely loose re-imagination of the 2011 documentary, Becoming Chaz. The ceremony includes deleted behind-the-scenes footage of invented family and friends who routinely emerge as tropes in trans masculine lives.
The rights of transgender citizens are currently under attack! Abrons Arts Center believes that artistic practice is key to a free and healthy society. In light of recent news about threats to federal protections for transgender and gender nonconforming people, we are proud to support the work of the Sylvia Rivera Law Project. Donate here and learn more about what you can do to support trans communities here.
Ashley R.T. Yergens is a byproduct of growing up on tater tots and WWE SmackDown. He’s a 2018-2019 Jerome Foundation AIRspace Resident at Abrons Arts Center, where his first evening-length performance prettygirl264264 will premiere in November 2018.
