In Exile. QueerWeek22


The hard reality of life in Berlin is, at the same time, a wet dream: here the self, lived out freely, constantly encounters alienating labels from the outside, as if being alienated from one's actual body wasn't challenging enough. Anyone who, self-confidently estranged from the world, searches for cohesion, will self-evidently be alienated – the never-ending search for security and the question of if it even exists, when escaping from one danger means the next is lying in wait. Alleged and actual safety will be explored in multilingual-speechless and nonverbal ways with performances, dance, parties, theatre, discussions and art exhibitions on queerness in exile and exile in queerness.
