Presentation

  • Clara, Sandra, Leyre, Raül, Ian, Dany, and Neus come onstage and introduce themselves as they are: men and women, long identified with one gender or another, in a body that feels like a prison. And when they finally escape it, the world refuses to recognise their true form. Violence, the streets, the institutions, workplace harassment, their family's refusal to understand, they've known all that... Starting in Barcelona, where they're from and where Didier Ruiz met them for the first time, they tell their stories. Struggle after struggle, it becomes unclear whether what matters is the journey or the destination. “Meeting them forced me to look up,” Didier Ruiz remembers, he who so often over the past twenty years has given voice to people one rarely hears from in theatres (factory workers, old people, prisoners...). Didier Ruiz describes TRANS (més enllà) as both creation and denunciation, to change “an intolerant society which no longer talks about love.” The second half of a diptych about those we don't see, this new opus is an attempt, through the question of gender, to better understand the complexity of humanity, at once personal and political.

    Didier Ruiz
    Factory workers, teenagers, researchers, former convicts, transgender people: Raul Ruiz's main preoccupation is to meet the actors of society and to give them an active part in his politically engaged creations by giving them an “accompanied voice.” So are born his shows, from the trust in each other thus earned and the word thus freed to be heard and shared. The stories he builds with and for others carry the political and sacred weight of the dramatic act: “to make the audience see and hear a shared humanity.” Didier Ruiz was previously invited to create 2014 as possibilities with youths from Avignon for the 69th edition of the Festival.
