Life is hard and then you die - part 3 is a performance lecture based on autobiographical material. It is an autobiography of a body and therefore unavoidably also about identity. Through a fractional collage of indescribable pains, psychological fashion reviews, anatomical reports of too many surgeries, memories, astrology, some disturbing ideas and dreams and bureaucratic adventures in gender - it will satisfy your curiosity, possibly more than you even wished for.
