OK boomer is a musical revue that rubs up against feminist discourses, an evening of dance, a karaoke event, an intergenerational chart show, an (in-)official hit list. A top of the pops, queering pop and music industry.
AHH take us on a queer time warp through the last decades of pop discourse: from "Männer" soft pop to still unrepresented or underrepresented artists of color. In search of them, OK boomer delves into an archive where we find, alongside existing songs, all that we miss: We rewrite, reinterpret, compose and empower ourselves of all those songs we wish we had.
At the same time, the evening asks about our standing on the generational ladder. Can we simply overwrite outdated feminist discourses and still value them? In turn, what expectations may we have of the younger generation? AHH close the gaps of the decades, blur the boundaries between real and fictional archives and deliver you a queer gala of superlatives!
