Traumboy and Traumgirl

Daniel Hellmann | Anne Welenc

Daniel is a sex worker. In the solo performance »Traumboy« he tells about his experiences as a prostitute. He tells why he took up this work, describes his customers and their wishes. The audience experiences a young man who loves to prostitute himself. The only problem: the stigma.

Kim is an actress. She is also a sex worker, once sold soap, is a barmaid, German, Polish… In »Traumgirl« Kim negotiates what it is like to work in the border area between “real work”, performance and so-called “dirty work”.

»Traumboy and Traumgirl« move between documentary theater and autofiction and question the double standards of a thoroughly capitalized and oversexualized society as well as the meaning of sex and work in the neoliberal system. The bodies on stage become projection surfaces for fears, fantasies and contradictions. What is a woman/man allowed to reveal about herself? What not? And who pays the price?

 

Daniel Hellmann is a dance and theater maker, singer and performer. His works examine bodies, bodily relationships and desire, and question social norms in the fields of sexuality, human and animal rights. After »Requiem for a Piece of Meat« and »All In«, »Traumboy« is the third work Daniel Hellmann presents at Ballhaus Ost.

Anne Welenc is an actress and performer. Her works are research-based and deal with transcendence. She is interested in combining clear narratives with surreal elements.
