Christ Leuenberger and Marcel Schwald
Christ Leuenberger, a dancer, choreographer, and performer, together with theatre director, performer, and writer Marchel Schwald, devised a performance that addresses the issues transgender people face in India through the language of dance and documentary theater. The first part of their project, that took place during their residency in early 2017, included a workshop aimed at engaging with the Aravani community through dance, creating a platform to meet Aravanis in an uncomplicated and playful way, through movement.
The pair returned later that year to create a piece after finding interested participants to work with. The project premiered in Switzerland to great acclaim in 2018.
