This year a new live performance project was born. TORA Victoria emerged from my inner depth. I started a project I was not at all sure where would lead to, where it would take me nor how long it would last. The TORA Victoria project performance lasted for two decades. It merged into the SNART project and the TORA Victoria live performance became the core of SNART and became known as Arte Vitae Performance.
All my life I had known I was ambiguous sexually. Since childhood I had been drawn to “girly” things but never identified as gay. At the early days of social media and the humongous potentials of the internet for networking and information gathering, I finally came to the conclusion that I was transgender. For me, Tora Victoria was as much as an art project as a personal outing; a way to come to terms with my feelings and emotions but most of all a recognition of what and who I was and am. TORA Victoria as has now been coined into a socio-political art project, a life long Arte Vitae performance.
