from B-Floor Theatre and Residenztheater
Inspired by and based on the interviews with Thai and German trans people
Supported by Goethe-Institut and the Jim Thompson Art Center
About the Production
With differences in context and society, eight trans people from Thailand and Germany have striven to find a way towards self-identification, driven by an urgency for clarity yet not without a sense of uncertainty. Some made decisions in childhood and adolescence; others in puberty or in a partnership, all against the daily pressure and vulnerability that prevented them from transforming into the person they really wanted to be.
In September, B-Floor Theatre (Bangkok) and Residenztheater (Munich) present the latest performance inspired by and based on the lives of the eight interview subjects, documented since 2019. Intertwined with stories, mythologies and literature from two different parts of the world, the performance is led by two Thai performers, one German performer, one Thai video artist and the Thai-German crew. The world premiere will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, on 15-18 and 22-25 September 2022. The following shows will take place in Munich, Germany, in October.
The discussion on the self-perception of trans people, the reactions of friends and families, the obstacles and their self-determination will lead us all to the questioning of sexual identity as a human being, transgender or not, who has all the rights and freedom over one’s own body and mind, transgender or not.
