is a performance solo offered out of curiosity around the intertwined follies of gender and relationship.

Using levity as a Trojan horse for heartache, Small Boobs unweaves and retangles tall tales and embodied blueprints of childhood, transhood, a donut shop, and beyond.

Created and performed by Chicago-based artist Nora Sharp, Small Boobs builds a world and invites you in, using personal history, a mini synthesizer, extended metaphor, and more.

Small Boobs was developed with the support of residencies at Links Hall and VOLTA Performing Arts in Chicago.

Running time is approximately 1 hour.
