When Luis was 10, he wanted to be a female gymnast, but he was a boy. At 15, he wanted to be desired, but he felt he was too hairy. Tonight, as a performer, he wants to be Ingrid Bergman. But he is a loser.
Stigma is the story of how Luis can become who he has always wanted to be.
Luis will tell the story of Esther Moya, a powerful gymnast who failed to win a medal. He will re-enact one of Ingrid Bergman’s most moving scenes. And he will share his visit to a sweaty gay sauna.
Written by Luis Amália and Adam Zmith, Stigma is a show about being yourself, even if you are a freak. This time, history will be written by losers, not winners.
Stigma is at Camden People’s Theatre on 17th March 2020. Tickets are on sale here.
