LGBT Center Play Challenges Perspectives on Gender and the Environment
By Dolores Quintana
The World Premiere of the play Frozen Fluid is an ethereal depiction of Antarctica, mirroring our present climate challenges, two scientists delve into the study of glaciers and whales. The arrival of Tay, a nonbinary phytoplankton scientist, prompts Herman and Terra to confront their notions of gender and humanity’s influence on the natural world. As the narrative unfolds, a transformative world emerges—one liberated from human interference, where gender, identity, religion, climate, and time undergo profound redefinition.
