CALYPSO – since 1988 throughout the year, two shows a day. Each show an audience of Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Malay, Indonesian, European, American nationalities. Different languages, religions, traditions, attitudes, mentalities at CALYPSO. An impact, at times a clash of cultural weight is unavoidable. CALYPSO’s female performers are transgender people, born as boys, morphed by their genuine need to live as a female, to look like a woman.
Transgender shows in general impress with look-alike performances, personnel lavishly decked with costumes, feathers, sequins. The individual human being disappears under the spell of décor and effect. CALYPSO’s history is the constant effort to free us from that stereotype, to fill the stage with rigorously trained and educated, spirited free bodies and minds, with beauty and excitement of individual talents for music, rhythm, and dance – never catering to clichéd expectations what and how a show should be. Passionately fighting prejudices with that purebred CALYPSO-mantra of quality: class, style, and taste.
