Theatre Babel Rotterdam is working on a new production for season 2019-2020: a show about Jessica: transgender actress and right now in the process of transition from man to woman. She boldly tells her story, dares to be vulnerable and doesn’t shy away from taboos. Inspired by her, her co-actors ask themselves the question when they feel at home in their own bodies. And when don’t they?


From J. to Jessica tells the personal story of a transgender and asks the audience the question: do you feel at home in your own body? And does our society allow you to really be who you are?


Paul Röttger, general manager of Babel and director of the production stands up for everyone who gets put aside by society. Writer Erik-Ward Geerlings develops a theatre text, based on conversations with and improvisations by the actors.
