You’ve Changed on tour in the Netherlands

The first ‘Love for All’ week will be held from 27 October to 3 November in Leeuwarden in a very aptly named venue, De Harmonie. Whether you’re gay, lesbian, bi, hetero, transgender or transsexual - everyone is welcome! All performances in the ‘Love for All’ week will centre around the theme of love: affectionate love, tragic love, but most of all, love for everyone. This special week will build up to a final fantastic international concert event on 3 November.

‘You’ve Changed’ is back with singing, dancing, hard-won humour and wisdom. It sheds light on transitioning from a man to a woman during the dark trans days of 2003. Kate transitions on stage from Fred Astaire to Ginger Rogers while challenging the principle of ‘genitals equal gender’ and literally laying herself bare. In ‘You’ve Changed’, a team of choreographers, musicians and cinematographers explores the ins and outs and ups and downs of transitioning. The show makes us wonder how far we’ve come and how much farther we have to go. According to Kate, the world is changing but not fast enough.
