The Institute of Change has a history of over 25 years in the field of sex reassignment procedures in Romania. Staying non-stop active in this sphere, this clinic managed to soften their methods slightly changing its character. Even with a vast history on the subject, The Institute of Change is now against surgical procedures and medical interventions. This clinic offers sexual reeducation services, hormonal treatment and gender reassignment through new interventions: total stage exposure, dance, gender performance, lip sync, cross dressing.

About the artists

Paul Dunca graduated the National University of Drama and Film “I.L.Caragiale” (Choreography section) and studied PlayWriting at U.N.A.T.C. Bucharest. His work is very eclectic and includes a very large diversity of expression: from waiting tables to his own MTV show, from community art and gogo dancing to performing at the Venice Biennale in the frame of the Romanian Pavilion, from articles in glossy magazines and roles in local movies to performing his work at the National Centre of Dance in Bucharest and showing it in the Judson Church, New York.
