Flamboyant and butch queen, cripped and queer: Butching Cowboys celebrates a new body norm. Anajara Amarante takes the audience into their queer version of South American surrealism and creates entire dance landscapes out of it. On stage, the performers free themselves from everything in which they feel like “Fremdkörper” or "weird bodies" – the symbols, clothing and doctor’s offices – and also leave behind learned and imposed behaviors.

Closely connected to the artists, the audience experiences a crescendo evening that is both visual protest and ritual celebration. Grief and anger about a society in which a multitude of bodies still find no place become a new way of self-empowerment here.
