SEX – Ein Solo
Sue Solo widmet sich dem Sex. Aus ganzem Herzen, mit großer (Wiss-) Begierde, aus rein wissenschaftlichem,
aber auch ganz privatem Interesse.

Der Queere Fool/The Queer Fool
"Es gibt einen Ort am Rand, wo wir spielen können." Der queere Fool springt in die Schubladen von Sexualität und Geschlecht und wieder heraus, liest Label auf und probiert sie an, nur, um sie wieder wegzuwerfen und etwas ganz anderes zu probieren... Die Performance ist improvisiert, versetzt mit eingespielter Musik.

'There is a place on the edge where we can play'. The Queer Fool jumps in and out of the boxes of sexuality and gender, picking up labels and trying them on, only to throw them away and try something else.....The performance is improvised, interspersed with original songs.  

Are You Talking To Me?
