GARDENIA. BEFORE THE LAST CURTAIN FALLS (Gardenia – Bevor der letzte Vorhang fällt)
The extraordinary story of a group of transsexuals and drag queens who, at the age of 60-70 decided to put themselves back on the line by performing “Gardenia”, a show written and directed by Alain Platel and Frank Van Laecke that mixes musical theatre, dance and transvestite cabaret: an international success that has taken them around the world on tour. Throughout their lives they have been artists and prostitutes, government officials and diplomats, passing through sex changes, overwhelming love and bitter disappointments, yet time after time they have found the strength to carry on.
Between a dressing room and a hotel room, a poignant story and proof that one can be oneself at any age.
