Role reversal provides a change of scene – Patrick Mcdonald From: The Advertiser

For 14 years, Vanessa Van Durme worked as a male prostitute on the streets of Antwerp to save for the operation that would transform her body into the woman she already felt in her mind and soul. That act of metamorphosis and shared dreams of transcendence are at the heart of Gardenia, a bold and brave work Van Durme has created with acclaimed Belgian dance company Les Ballets C de la B, which returns to this year’s Adelaide Festival.
