This radiophonic piece is the result of a poetic encounter between Floy krouchi and members of the Hijra community in India, the transexual sacred community of India.
It is a Sonic object in form of a kaleidoscope, which explores the frontiers between documentary, essay, and hoerspiel: Real life with the Hijras, celebrations, rituals, myths, daily life, struggles, activism; Interviews, testimonies, open mics and poetry.
All the texts performed in "Hijras Diaries" have been generated through writing workshop Floy Krouchi organised in Bangalore, South India, with a group of 5 to 9 particpants from the Hijra community. The encounters and the work process have been going on for a period of 5 years.
