About the Show

The story follows Jessica a transgender actress at Theater Babel in Rotterdam. She shares her story openly, nothing remains unspoken, all is vulnerable, without taboos. This wonderful production explores straight-forward, vulnerable and (un)usual confessions about youth and sexuality which features a spectacular 360 degree projection.

From J. to Jessica is the first in a series of five portraits from an inclusive society.

Theatre text based on conversations with and improvisations by the actors.

This show contains themes of a sexual nature.
