KünstlerInnen zeigen an drei Abenden die Vielfältigkeit der queeren Performancekunst auf verschiedenen Ebenen: Unmittelbar auf der Bühne, vermittelnd in einer Ausstellung und theoretisch im Rahmen einer Podiumsdiskussion. Statt eine von unzähligen Beschreibungsmöglichkeiten der Begriffe „Queer“ oder „Performance“ liefern zu wollen, liegen die Strategien des In-Frage-Stellens (QUESTIONING) und der Selbstermächtigung (EMPOWERMENT) im Fokus des Festivals, das bestehende Parameter, was interdisziplinäre, queere Performances bedeuten und noch bedeuten können, erweitern möchte.

*DeniceDenise sind Denice Bourbon und Denise Kottlett. Die beiden Performerinnen bilden zusammen eine interdisziplinäre Superdiva aus Musik, Performance, Popkultur, Punk, Camp und Glamour.

On three nights performers will show the diversity of queer performance art on different levels: directly on the stage, intermediary through an exhibition and theoretical within the context of a panel discussion. Instead of delivering one of many descriptions of the concept „queer“ or „performance“, the festival´s focus lies within the exploration of strategies of QUESTIONING and EMPOWERING. The festival ´s aim is to extend the exisiting parameters of what interdisciplinary, queer performances mean and can mean in the future.

*DeniceDenise are Denice Bourbon and Denise Kottlett. Together the two performance artists form one interdisciplinary superdiva of music, performance, pop culture, punk, camp and glamour.

Dears, I am sorry, but I really can't catch up with aaaall this overwhelming THANK YOU posts and tags of you darlings! There has been such an excessive use of 'amazing awesomness' to address exactely all this amazing awesomness that was brought to the festival through you - I just can't help sounding like an empty parrot to myself. And that's not what I want to give to you. So, you just have to trust that my 'German-style' Thank You is just as honest and warm hearted and that I am also really glad and happy to have met and worked with you! :-) Also, I really cherish the curatorial attempt of wanting to give something back and taking this opportunity to do so. Thank you for this warm hearted mind-set and sharing all the little personal stories with us! And the same also for all the poeple who shared themselves into the circle on Saturday afternoon - that was very pleasent!

Ok People, We gotta talk. I think you need to consider following; 1. This awesome festival is starting on thursday. Three days of amazing queer performances, many of them have NEVER before been on a Viennese Stage. And all this UNDER ONE ROOF! ON ONE STAGE! 2. You get so fucking much candy for your money, it's CRAZY! for example; buy 6 tickets for 78 bucks. and use the tickets however you want to. all 6 on the same night, or spread them. out. give them to friends. put them in frames. I don't care. but with that super offer, the possibility to be part of this fabulousness costs you as much as 1 pizza, 1 beer and a toothpick for dessert. So drink at home instead of in a bar just ONE time this month and there you GO! The key to Queerdom is yours!! 3. Regarding Thursday. The rehearsals are in full force and I gotta tell you; Org-asmic!! Our surprise acts are so fucking cool, and what Cunt and La Georgetta will bring you.. is just genius. And that we are ending the night with (which at the same time will be the start of an awesome party night in Marea Alta with the performers DJ-ing!!!) black cracker AND Oh Blimey !!!!!! I mean, COME ON.....!!!!!!!! fuck. yes. this will be BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!
