Becoming is solo performance by Erum Khan developed in the Buddies for Bad Times Emerging Playwrights program. A woman who is trapped in purgatory and forced to navigate a space she has no power to escape. As she waits for an ultimate judgement, she grapples with various fractured memories of her life. Inspired by the work of avant-garde filmmaker Maya Deren, Becoming delves into a stream of consciousness exploration of the ever-evolving perspectives we are subjected to, and the ways in which it informs the identities we take on for ourselves.
