Kim is an actress. She is also a sex worker, bartender, German, Polish and more. Which identity is most important?
Traumgirl is a brand new, solo show about female sex work in all its forms – and who pays the price. Anne Welenc takes an autofictional approach to explore what a woman is allowed to reveal about herself. Where do your boundaries lie?
Created in response to Daniel Hellmann’s Traumboy, a performance from the perspective of a male sex worker, the two shows are performed on alternating nights during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe as part of Pro Helvetia’s Swiss Selection Edinburgh. The Swiss premieres will happen for the opening of the new Tanzhaus Zürich and for the 35th anniversary of XENIA - Fachstelle Sexarbeit at Schlachthaus Theater Bern.
