The eMANcipation Proclamation of GoGo Gadget is an evening length exposition, told through monologue, dance, projections, live surveys, storytelling, humor, and vulnerable exposure, of one man’s struggle to understand his continually changing sense of self-awareness and development through the taxing lens of “body image”.
