A True Story

A stage production on transgender childhood, transgender parenthood and family relationships.
This project by the company 71BODIES is inspired, based and performed by transgender kids, teenagers and transgender adults along with their chosen family members.
'We, transgender people, cannot transition alone. We need the entire society to transition with us. For this we need to hear and consider all sides of the story. The essence of A True Story is to create around the complexity of all experiences; not only the transgender person but also how the family experiences the gender transition of their child, parent, partner or friend,' writes Daniel Mariblanca about the production.
The performance is a multidisciplinary project with an artistic focus on dance, live music, visual art, film 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 marginalized communities, and in particular communities where the body is at the centre of the discussion.
