Paige makes a good point and as we welcome you to Salt Lake Acting Company and to HIR by Taylor Mac, we invite you to reimagine gender. Gender identity is how we perceive ourselves in the world and it goes beyond our biological makeup and is separate from who we are attracted to. Between the pronouns he and she, there are hundreds of varieties of personal gender pronouns. You can’t always know someone’s pronoun by looking at them; asking which pronoun they use shows respect and validation.

“What you think you know, you do not know. There are no longer two genders. No longer simply a Y and X chromosome, but an alphabet of genders. In these new genders, exists new pronouns. Max is no longer a she or a he. So you call Max, ze. You must use ze instead of the pronouns he or she and you must use the pronoun, hir, in place of the pronouns her or him.” Paige, the mother in HIR

I absolutely love the education I receive from the plays SLAC produces. I’m constantly rethinking my life. I revel in the understanding and ever-broadening awareness of what it means to be human and how we can improve our relationships with each other. A core value of SLAC is our inclusive and supportive work environment, and honoring personal gender pronouns is an important component of creating a safe place for staff, artists and audience. Thank you for being here, and cheers to expanding hearts and minds, Cynthia Executive Artistic Director She/her/hers

When we introduce ourselves at our first rehearsals, we state our personal gender pronoun. This is a baby step, and we are in the process of adding personal gender pronouns on all company contact sheets and even in the signatures of our emails. Using the wrong pronoun can make a person feel unsafe, dismissed, and the worst case scenario, erased. We all want to do the right thing and honor one’s identity, and as we learn, we will make mistakes. When you do refer to someone with the wrong pronoun, apologize and correct it. It is also important and good practice to use the correct personal gender pronoun when the person is not in the room and you’re speaking about them/hir/per/her/him.

In The Room with

Tracy Callahan The subject matter is timely and in many ways timeless. I feel challenged by all that must be accomplished in order to do the work justice. That is pretty exciting to me! What is your favorite part of the rehearsal process? Why?

Let’s start with your relationship with SLAC and how you came to know this play. I am originally from Chicago and came to Utah to work with Weber State’s Theatre Program about 23 years ago. SLAC was the first theatre I approached to see about directing projects. They hired me that season to co-direct an evening of one-act plays with three other local directors and I have been working on and off with them ever since. Although I knew about Taylor Mac and his unique performance style I was not aware of this play until I saw it on SLAC’s season and read it. I had a very strong reaction to the subject matter and Mac’s vision of domestic abuse and survival as well as the way he tore through the emotional gamut. What excites you about HIR and this production of it? It is like nothing I have ever directed—it is fresh and violent and sad and funny.

14

I like both my personal journey with the text in preparation for rehearsal and then discovering and unlocking all of the hidden truths of the play when I work with actors in the rehearsal room. I came to directing via acting so I feel a keen sense of the struggles and triumphs the actors experience as they cajole and at times wrestle the character from the page. Are there any unique challenges with this play? Hmmm where do I begin? I guess I would have to say that there is a unique balance in the play that Mac describes as “Absurd Realism”, absurdity that comes from a heightened but realistic point of view. Figuring out how to stretch the boundaries without losing the heart of the play is the blissful struggle of the text. Luckily I have surrounded myself with talented actors who are willing to experiment and explore the huge range that this play demands. Is there a character and/or theme in HIR that you particularly connect with? Why? The idea that we are “all everything” in the world and the way Mac explores gender roles and specifically the transgender character as a metaphor for society and the future is very

www.saltlakeactingcompany.org


exciting. There is so much news about how we identify as though this is a new concept in the world but many cultures throughout history have accepted the idea of multiple genders. Until India came under British rule the notion of more than two genders was part of the culture. As the character Max, who is 17 and identifies as transgender says towards the end of the play, “HIRstory is not new. I’m not the new. I’m old. There is no new. How can you become new in a form that’s so old its experimentation is a craft.” We in the west are behind in our willingness to accept and embrace difference as a natural part of human existence. This view is one that I feel is both timely and a direct expression

HIR

of the kind of socially aware theatre I am most drawn to. What are you most looking forward to come opening night? I am interested to see how the play and this production lands on the audience. As with all plays, the ultimate test is how the audience receives the work that we have been exploring. I have found over the years that SLAC’s audiences are the most open and generous in the state but they are also discerning and hold us to a standard of excellence. That is exactly as it should be. It is a challenge that makes the journey all the more worthwhile.

University Professional Theatre Program SLAC is delighted to partner with local universities to heighten theatre students’ educational experience by taking them out of the classroom and hiring them at a professional theatre. During HIR we would like to welcome Martin C. Alcocer, Emily Chung, Liggera Edmonds-Allen, Claudia Escobar, Mauri Hefley, and Aaron Ross as a part of the University Professional Theatre Program. "I will further develop my design skills as well as my professional collaboration skills. This program will give me the opportunity to collaborate with other professionals." - Martin C. Alcocer | Assistant Light Design | U of U

"I’m learning about the entire sound design process, from planning, to set up, to implementation. I will become more knowledgeable about where and how sound travels through a theater and more proficient in controlling and directing sound in a live setting. This program will help me because it will allow me to experience the job of a sound designer by assisting one." – Emily Chung | Assistant Sound Design | U of U "My career focus is in theatrical studies in relation to transgender advocacy and representation, so this particular production and role also help my career by giving me experience working with cisgender professionals as a transgender performer. In an educational setting, being an advocate for myself and other transgender students is very important to me, and I am very eager to learn how to continue that work in a professional setting. " - Liggera Edmonds-Allen | Actor | DaVinci Academy "This program will give me valuable experience working with professionals in the field. I have a lot to learn and know that I can learn valuable lessons from everyone about the process, preparation, and level of expectation that goes into professional theater." - Claudia Escobar | Sound Board Operator | U of U

GREEN ROOM GALLERY Salt Lake Acting Company is elated to continue our partnership with Art Access during the run of HIR. Art Access is a community-focused organization that strives to demonstrate that the arts are a universal vehicle for drawing out our similarities, celebrating our differences, and ultimately connecting us to each other. Through its philosophy of inclusion, Art Access serves people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. Art Access is proud to present work by local trans and genderqueer artists Ella Mendoza, Jaxton Mullineaux, and Mel Wise for the production of ‘Hir.’ As paradigms around gender and self-expression shift, we look to artists to show us the experience that has necessitated those shifts, and the joyful possibilities of our future. Green Room Featured Artists: Jaxton Mullineaux, Ella Mendoza, Mel Wise
