FRUTAS AFRODISÍACAS

Created by and featuring Simon(è) J. Paetau, Jair Luna, Iury Trojaborg

Forget about the old colonial explorer routes! The Frutas Afrodisíacas sail from the exoticised spheres of South America right into the heart of the German metropolis. Here in West-Berlin’s fag movement of the 1980s, they search for commonalities, contradictions, and themselves.

How did the AIDS crisis unite a whole community? Is there something like a queer heritage, and if so, what does it comprise? For one night, we’ll transform the bar at Ballhaus Naunynstraße into Café Anal, where you will be merrily waited on and entertained. We will dance for you like Carmen Miranda with the fag troupe Ladies Neid.

This night serves as a reminder for us to enjoy the fruits of our former struggles. A night about the explosive power of failure. A night against isolation and in support of taking the risk of consistently trying one another once more. Because we’re less lonely in a fruit salad.

A QUEER INTERVENTION
Gritty Glamour takes us into the Berlin night, to the backstage area of a club in Kreuzberg. Four artists: Maria Sumak, golden voice of electro and queen of the nightlife; Mad Rage, punk-feminist performer; Molina Puig, dancer and it-girl; and Greta Dietrich, West Berlin’s grande dame of drag chanson. While one performer at a time is on stage, the performer’s constellations and relationships behind the stage change. While they wait, they act out stories from their lives and engage with their respective understanding of community, sex, love, diaspora, family and the relationship between their everyday and their stage persona.

All of the performers are artists and figures from Berlin’s nightlife. The play interrogates the visibility of queer post-migrant artists and the role racist attributions play in a dominantly white queer scene. The artists’ diverse artistic forms of expression and perspectives are celebrated in a night of performance, juxtaposed in dialogue with one another and fictionalised. Based on interviews, the experiences and stories each participant brings with them are brought to the stage, reflecting a part of the life of the protagonists in Berlin. A life in contradictory worlds, often very close to precarity, where the exploration of boundaries, of sexuality, is part of the norm and the individual self is in a constant process of negotiation. The performers slip into the roles of their counterparts, take on their identities – and in an equally interdisciplinary involvement with music, text, video and dance they also keep re-negotiating the form of what happens on stage.

Ein Film über zwei apokalyptische Sissies zwischen Bogotá, Berlin und Cartagena. Jair ist Tänzer, Simon Filmemacher. Was als Dokumentarfilm über einen Tänzer beginnt, verwandelt sich langsam in eine Performance für die Kamera. Die Performances, die sie gemeinsam schaffen, spielen mit dem Dazwischen, dem Männlich-Weiblichen und der Aneignung von Räumen und Erwartungen, die auf sie projiziert werden.

Gritty Glamour takes us into the Berlin night, to the backstage area of a club in Kreuzberg. During a solidarity event, four artists are getting ready for their stage performance: Maria Sumak, golden voice of electro and queen of the nightlife; Blue Collar, rapper/musician and poet; Molina Puig, dancer and it-girl; and Greta Dietrich, West Berlin’s grande dame of drag chanson. While one performer at a time is on stage, the performer’s constellations and relationships behind the stage change. While they wait, they act out stories from their lives and engage with their respective understanding of community, sex, love, diaspora, family and the relationship between their everyday and their stage persona.

The play interrogates the visibility of queer post-migrant artists and the role racist attributions play in a dominantly white queer scene.
