Körper Körper is a piece about body, gender and identity. It is a vulnerable, personal and yet universal piece about being human. It started from a personal state. Leon from the collective is a transman and they used his transition as inspiration. Leon’s story opens up many issues and complexities. Through a personal story we found countless universal references. With a hint of humour and mystery we hope to reach a larger audience and serve a very serious package with a lightness to it.
NEON created the piece Körper Körper at De Nieuwe Oost in May 2017, later they got invited to show the piece at ITS festival in Amsterdam. At ITS, the piece was selected to join Het Debuut Rudolphi producties, with which they toured around the Netherlands.
