In 2018, the company premiered the multidisciplinary production 71BODIES 1DANCE, which was inspired by seventy one transgender people and their stories. The performance has received local, national, and international support and visibility. Through film, photography and dance, the performance talks about binary and non-binary destinies, about transformations in people of different ages from different parts of the world.

The second work of 71BODIES was In First Person that premier in 2020 receiving the BTs kritikerpris in Pernilleprisen in 2021.
Mariblanca will join us at Bergen Pride 2021 and will through conversation talk to us about the importance of art as a way to process and empower difficult matters, on why representation matters and how we can create safe spaces for celebration of gender and trans identity. He will also screen videos and photographs from some of the work with 71BODIES, and Mariblanca will give us some insight in his upcoming project; A True Story.
