Based on the film by R. W. Fassbinder

“When a year has 13 new moons, inescapable personal tragedies may occur.” Thus begins Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s famous film In a Year with 13 Moons (1978), adapted for the stage by Katerina Giannopoulou, with Giorgos Valais in the role of Elvira.

Abandoned by everyone, the transgender heroine wanders through the streets of an unfriendly city, visiting places and people who have left their mark on her, and trying to come up with a reason to live. The year 2020 will also be a year with 13 moons, a dangerous year for the weak, especially those at the fringes of society, in these critical times for human rights and gender issues. Dramatising the last five days in Elvira’s life and her attempts to heal the wounds of rejection, this performance tells a universal story: that of a human being desperately looking for love, suffocating in social norms and daily fighting for the right to exist.
