How To Have A Body is a multi-media solo theatrical show, based upon Gina Stella dell’Assunta’s highly-anticipated forthcoming book of experimental prose & poetry about the intersections of queerness and disability. Using storytelling, spoken word, ritual, and music, Stella dell’Assunta explores the trials and joys of living in a queer disabled body in San Francisco in 2019. How To Have A Body takes the audience on a journey through public and private spaces: The hustle & bustle of MUNI, BART, the Pride parade, CopWatch, the Welfare office, the Social Security Administration, airports, the haunted streets of San Francisco; and the private, intimate respite of a magical cripple femme bed palace, a rent-controlled studio with fruit trees in the backyard, a long-distance lover’s bedroom, an old friend’s living room, a warm bright kitchen. Consider this a spell, an incantation, an invitation to intimacy, a call to action, a rallying cry.
