I Was Told.

About the show

I Was Told. consists of 55 minutes of humour, authenticity, shared moments between the audience and the performer, as well as feminism and a large portion of empowerment. I Was Told. plays with, questions and manipulates how the audience and the artist herself perceive her as a performer and woman on stage. It unites Spoken Word with ring juggling, humour with serious topics, lifts the audience up whilst encouraging reflection. I Was Told. successfully premiered in August 2022 as part of the Spoken Word Festival Odense, Denmark., and in collaboration with Dynamo Workspace. Review of the premiere (Fyens DK): 'The hour in Kathrin's company is both humorous and audience-engaging, but also thought-provoking.'
