“Trans = “across, beyond, through, on the other side of” ”, indeed we’re transiting: we’re not from here nor from there. We’re not classified but we do have our identity. Our work is plenty of transversal lines joining points to create a translucent, transborder language; a language that does not obey to the established norms. A language eager to .transform conventions and rebels against conformism. A space exposing expressive beings, beyond the interpreter. This way biological and technological spaces are created.
CROTCH opened socio-political paths about gender, feminism and transfeminism. Its version for adolsenct successfuly captures the attention of the audience that’s hardest to get.
With MIRAMIRÓ Baal approaches the infantile audience, setting the path for future spectators.
