New music and poetry from Trevor Bachman‘s musical “Shapeshifters”, recently performed at Joe’s Pub and The Delacorte Theater. From ancient traditions of metamorphoses to modern-day code switching, to “all the times I have been terrified of my own becoming” to “all the versions of myself I have had to leave behind”, soaring melodies, eclectic beats, and uncompromising lyrics highlight the role of queerness as historical opposition to fascism. A gripping love letter to LGBTQIA+ legacy and community, Shapeshifters is a musical survival guide for uncertain times.
