show.Rooms_regional: Queerelen!

23. – 24. November 2015 Villach, AT

Queer is derived from the German word cross, as well as from the English of strange, peculiar, eccentric, homosexual. With Queerelen! a controversy was created that challenges normative structures and shows vacancies in Widmanngasse and Kaiser-Josef-Platz in Villach. In short performances, the audience experienced various contributions in five rooms. Among the guides who accompanied them through the evening, there were people who themselves live a queer way of life.
