By Sebastià Portell Director Miquel Gorriz
Sexism, hypocrisy, binaries, transphobia… Transbord could have revolved around an “anti-” discourse, but on this occasion we wanted it to be a “pro-” play: pro-joy, pro–second opportunities, pro–happy memories and the ones that are yet to be made.
With a direct text with dashes of lyricism, this play deals with a theme that is surprisingly taboo in our cultural sphere – transgenderness – and does so from a complex-free, clean perspective: from scratch. From here, the apparent solidity of people’s identities can be questioned, through both the interplay among the characters and Pol’s wild yet lucid thoughts.
What defines whether we are men or women? Who decides? Do we only have two options to choose from? The theatre, the home of the mask, the rehearsal and the fable that leads to revelation, is undoubtedly the best space for tackling and responding to some of these issues.
