Transformations is a piece about gender roles for teenagers age 14 to 16. Based on interviews with teenagers from various schools in Hamburg, Moritz Frischkorn and Verena Brakonier explore the boundaries and transitions between genders. They write and sing songs about transformation, enter the boxing ring and re-negotiate their inner self. All the while asking themselves: how much freedom to we have to play with gender roles and why didn’t we have it earlier?
