ID-clash in Düsseldorf in September 2016

Intercultural performance and installation project on trans identity / trans sexuality
The story of success of our intercultural project ID-clash continues: After the successful guest performances in Dhaka/Bangladesh 2015, ID-clash has been adapted to a new location in Düsseldorf. It has been performed as part of the Internationale Tanzmesse as well as for opening the season 2016/17 at tanzhaus nrw.

The Düsseldorf location is a former postal building located just opposite the tanzhaus nrw. It has been empty for several years, but will be re-used starting 2017. We thank Catella GmbH for using the space.

Male? Female? Other?
Transgender people do not conform to the expectations of the gender role assigned to them at birth. They feel they are in the “wrong body” and often experience a sense of dislocation. ID-clash focuses on different concepts for living and stages of transition of transgender persons. Two hijras, representatives of the “third gender” culture from Bangladesh, encounter with three transgender people from Europe and Latin America.
