From September 29 to October 2, Olympia Bukkakis & The Darvish from Queens Against Borders and Your Mom’s team up with Grinderteeth, HYENAZ, Simonne Jones, and vc KRISTI, under the patronage of Berlin Projektfonds Kulturelle Bildung, for four days of workshops and mentoring to learn about the art of drag, from costume and makeup, to performing live, producing or DJing your soundtrack, setting up the stage, sound and lights… the whole starting with a reading and ending with a drag performance where Pop and Experimental music, traditional drag and current trends, Western and Middle Eastern aesthetics clash and finally come together for a different kind of drag show experience.
APPLY NOW: the free workshops are open for 14 folks, 18 to 26 years old, with a refugee background.
Workshop launch with a casual public reading at Galerie-Zeitzone on Sunday September 29, 6 to 8PM. Come meet the team, have a drink, listen to queer and migration stories with us.
End show at ACUD MACHT NEU on Wednesday October 2, 6 to 9PM. Be ready to be dazzled!
Both events are free, donations are welcome.
We are looking for (especially queer and trans but not exclusively) refugees under the
age of 26 who are able to commit to a FREE four day workshop where you will
receive mentorship in various aspects of putting a show together.
