The production A True Story by the company 71BODIES is inspired, based and performed by transgender kids, teenagers and transgender adults along with their chosen family members.
- As trans people, we cannot transition alone. We need the entire society to make the effort to transition with us. Then we need to hear and reflect on all sides of the story. It's not just about the trans person, but about how the family experiences the changes and treatment that their child, parent, partner or friend goes through, says Daniel Mariblanca about the production.
The performance is a multidisciplinary project with an artistic focus on dance, live music, visual art and performance, and the work will also become a book.
A True Story is directed and choreographed by 71BODIES' founder, Daniel Mariblanca, in collaboration with several national and international artists. The transgender inclusive dance and performance company works with and in communities where the body is at the centre of the discussion.
The performance includes children and is kid-friendly, but the content is apprehensible for adults. There is no age limitation. The protagonists range in age from 8 to 85. The venue is universally designed with accessibility for wheelchair users. The performance is universally designed. Sign language and visual Interpretation are a part of this wheelchair accessible event.
