Traumboy by Daniel Hellman

Daniel is a sex worker. In the solo performance Traumboy he reports on his experiences as a male prostitute. Without shame, honestly and interactively.

Traumboy questions the double standards of our capitalistic and hypersexualized society. The performer’s body turns into a projection surface for fears, fantasies and contradictions. Daniel slips into different roles that he plays for his customers – or for the audience? With this ambiguous self-staging the spectators are challenged to scrutinize their sexual ideals and to take a close look at the sexual being that they consider themselves. Are the boundaries in your mind where you expect them?
