Daniel is an artist. He’s also a sex worker. Through accounts of clients and their desires, Traumboy explores why he chose this profession, and why having sex for money is still considered taboo.

Told with humour and honesty, this interactive performance challenges audiences to scrutinize their own sexual ideals and appetites, as Daniel performs different roles for his customers – and the audience. Where do your boundaries lie?

Traumboy is performed on alternating nights with Anne Welenc’s Traumgirl: a performance from the perspective of a female sex worker.

Part of Pro Helvetia’s Swiss Selection Edinburgh, Traumboy has toured in ten countries.
