Is the division between genders a cultural construction? What does it mean to be a woman? What does it mean to be a man?

In this last piece of the trilogy about women, identity and history, we have focused on the vital journey of a young transsexual woman: Raphaëlle Pérez. The play is based on her real experience of gender transition; a path marked by her struggle, her search for identity and self-affirmation, her dreams and the breaking of conventional moulds. Despite being born in one of the leading countries in Europe (France), Raphaëlle’s life has not been, is still not, and perhaps will never be easy at all. Her courage, her aspirations and disappointments challenge us directly.

‘Raphaëlle shares with us a view that oscillates between rationality and emotion, about a world in full transformation regarding social struggles and conquests, minorities’ rights, the education that we receive and, in short, the roles we assume or we are forced to assume.
