We are love, just like the people behind the Trauma Kink show, and love is a form of resistance against social and political discrimination, a force of connection, empathy, and understanding that surpasses norms and promotes a sense of belonging. I laughed, applauded, and sang along with the actors to a selection of reinvented hits. So if you want to explore a world beyond what you think you know about yourself and the people around you, go see Trauma Kink.Jianu C. – Nice Magazine
𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐮𝐦𝐚 𝐊𝐢𝐧𝐤 is a show about how early traumas and those experienced as adults define our perception of intimacy and pleasure. The show opens the conversation about trauma in a natural way, through the stories of five artists who open up to the audience in a performative approach that blends confessional elements with fiction and hedonistic imagery.
A performance about trauma and hedonism, beyond dictionary definitions, but above all about the power of vulnerability that heals.
