Lebanese Yousef Iskandar, who lives between Berlin, Barcelona and Lebanon, creates hybrid performances in which he leads clichés of masculinity and feminine seduction to absurdity: belly dance, tantra and cabaret meet audio- visual art, Arab Acid, burlesque and oriental dance and merge into one New genre. Iskandar wants to work towards the folklorization and desexualisation of Arabian dances by portraying them as “what they truly are”: tools of seduction. ARABURLESQUE is a continuation and fictionalization of SALOME. As a young man, Iskandar also found his liberation in the nightclubs of the city. As a high-energy performance, ARABURLESQUE brings his passion for dressing up and erotic choreographies to the stage.


Through the language of sound Rosaceae expresses what ordinary language cannot convey and unsettles normative rules of listening with her a cutting-edge music. Across Noise, Techno and non-western sounds Rosaceae centers around diasporic narratives and even further transgresses into other versions of identity.

QUEERS IN EXILE (05.-07.10.2017)

For members of the LGBTIQ* community, especially activists, a path to western exile can often mean a step away from repression and vi- olence in daily life and into personal and political freedom. Over the course of three evenings, the QUEERS IN EXILE laboratory presents positions that have generated new bravery and energy in exile – not only to freely express yourself on a personal level, but also artisti- cally and in terms of activism.
