Kopf der Puppe aus "Hero"

Who are we? What determines our identity? Is it our own self-perception and self-definition? Or is it the view of others and society’s view of ourselves? Hero is an examination of and playful exploration of the most diverse facets of a personality. Tibo Gebert starts from his own queer biography with its coming outs and transformations. He overlays it with the myth of superheroes in order to encounter split-off identities in the play on stage  a powerful reflection on becoming visible and invisible.
