Staged Readings

I can queerly see // Exile conceived as a reaction to (impending) violence in the range of possibilities also shifts (in)security into a spectrum. This directs the gaze to those heterotopias where neither exile nor queerness play a role because they are taken for granted: in safer spaces - or where one‘s own identity can be freely shaped: on stage.For some, their own body becomes an exile, and for others, the traumas left behind are only replaced by new ones. Sometimes the changed view of one‘s own situation also rewrites (family) history: Queer Awakening thanks to exile.Three authors and three directors were selected through an open call and developed a joint evening exploring queerness in exile and exile in queerness in the context of a workshop, working  together with ensemble players from Gorki.
