»Every film about war ends up being pro-war« (François Truffaut)


The performance Fucking Truffaut by Bliadski Circus Queebaret developed for the Maxim Gorki Theater, under the direction of the Ukrainian director Roza Sarkisian, asks questions such as: Can we still explore and discover new narratives of war discourse? Is critical art possible in times when all culture is put on a propaganda track? How to escape the circle of reproduction of artistic militaristic discourse? Does society need theater when kamikaze drones are flying overhead? To explore the answers to these questions, Bliadski Circus Queebaret’s practice does not depart from a discourse of trauma, but rather performance of possibilities. Thereby Queebaret queers war discourses, experiences, and representations. The special guest of the evening will be Antonina Romanova – a Ukrainian queer artist and trans soldier – who will connect with Berlin via internet to present the premiere performance Queebaret from the front line.
