A woman struggling with body-image issues sets out on a journey to self-acceptance and crosses paths with plenty of others who happen to be dealing with a diverse set of similar concerns, in this world-premiere piece of documentary theater. Written and performed by Danielle Pinnock and developed from more than 300 interviews conducted with people from around the world, Body/Courage takes a more nuanced look at society's unreasonable expectations surrounding personal appearance and our attempts to mold ourselves into some unattainable ideal of perfection. Rivendell Theatre, Chicago's only professional company focused on female artists, hosts this exciting new show.
