​Ich bin's Frank

A project by and with Julia Häusermann
Director: Nele Jahnke

Concept and authors: Eliane Bertschi, Anna Fierz, Julia Häusermann, Nele Jahnke, Mehdi Moradpour, Hans-Jakob Christian Mühlethaler, Maxi Schmitz, Sabina Winkler

While working Julia Häusermann calls herself "Frank," after Frank Levinsky from the German television series "Verbotene Liebe" ("Forbidden Love"). But she's much more than Frank and much more than Julia, the woman with Trisomie 21. She's a medium, a performer who transforms into ghosts, pop icons, telenovela characters, machines, and entertainers. She moves, grieves, becomes furious, and laughs from the bottom of her heart with all of her senses. She playfully, obliviously, usurpingly, and affirmatively transcribes and transgresses images of self-improvement and norms attributed to womanliness.
