TRANS PRACTICES FOR EVERYDAY LIFE
Premiere: 24.06.22, Künstler*innenhaus Mousonturm, Frankfurt am Main
In Frankfurt, seven people (a choreographer, a dramaturg, and five performers) come together to mine our expertise in being radically ourselves. As trans and nonbinary folks, we wake up everyday ready to thwart reality, choosing to shape our bodies and identities through self-determined improvisation – even in the face of systems that threaten to pathologize or erase us. Ours is a double negation: of the systems that structure life, and the need to inhabit them.
In the rehearsal studio, we develop physical practices out of our unique daily routines. We write, talk, move, sing. One of us bathes in her dance of trying on dresses; another giddily wrestles with his own biceps. We choreograph our own existence, deciding how, where, and when we want to be witnessed. We invite you to do the same.
