DELUSIONAL "I killed a man"

DELUSIONAL "I killed a man" is a contemporary circus solo show that embarks on a trans woman's journey.

The show explores the haunting feeling of having murdered one’s former self, a common experience for many trans women when leaving their assigned gender behind.

Through a multidisciplinary repertoire of circus disciplines such as aerials, dance, singing, and physical theatre, Diana Salles invites us to reflect on the physical and emotional strength it takes to honor one’s deepest truth. 

Directed by Firenza Guidi, it highlights the inherent connection between death and rebirth.
