Description

Kim is an actress. She is also a sex worker, a 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. Welenc takes an auto-fictional 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. Part of Pro Helvetia's Swiss Selection Edinburgh.

Throughout the show Welenc answers audience questions, tells stories...
