TRANS-Ville ACT IV started with artist Lisa Levy who gave a touching stand-up monologue experiment in the nude mapping the traumas of life through the scars on her body, while gender-fluid Keijaun Thomas brought us into the dark and the depth of gender transformation. A black trans-femme using a powerful sound piece roaming the crowd with domestic tools and props. Naomi Elena Ramirez performed a minimal and serene contemporary dance movement enticing her female sexuality. David Henry Nobody Jr. broke the silence with a wild expressionist genderless character, smudging popular foods and creams onto the body and the gallery space ending in a complete disaster scenario. Tyler Ashley - The Dauphine of Bushwick offered private therapy dances before he staged a grand finale in a choreographed fabulous drag queen numero to the Ray of Light by Madonna.
