I Was Told. is a 55-minute, interdisciplinary piece involving ring juggling and slam poetry, which deals with the influence of language, in the literal and metaphorical sense, on the perception of oneself and others. The artist Kathrin Wagner resolves the emerging identity conflict in an authentic, honest, humorous, and empowering manner. In I Was Told., the artist plays with, questions, and manipulates how the audience and the artist herself perceive her as woman and performer on stage.
