SICK! Festival: Daniel Hellmann - Traumboy
Location: ACCA Auditorium
Daniel is a sex worker. In the solo performance Traumboy he reports on his experiences as a male prostitute. Without shame, honestly and interactively, he questions the double standards of our capitalistic, hypersexualized society.
He slips into different roles that he plays for his customers (or for the audience?). Spectators are challenged to scrutinize their sexual ideals and to take a close look at the sexual being that they consider themselves to be.
Post-show discussion following The Game and Traumboy, Dr. Tanya Palmer (University of Sussex) and Luca Stevenson (Sex Workers’ Open University) join the artists to explore issues of consent, gender and power dynamics raised by these two performances.
