In-person, Vienna

Workshop Dates & Times (CET):

Monday Feb. 26: 6 pm to 8 pm

Thursday Feb. 29: 12 pm to 4 pm

This workshop aims at critically engaging with and countering the continuous politicized violence on human rights. On the one hand, it wants to further understand the ideologies perpetuating such violence and locate them in a broader structural level of hegemonic power through sexualization, racialization, class hierarchization, criminalization and pathologization of “othered” bodies. On the other hand, it explores the evocative force of drag art practices for forms of resistance against these ideologies. What does drag do to our activism, our daily embodiment, our relationality with others, and our perceptions? This practical exploration is threefold: 1. Three drag artists share their drag practices with those who are interested in drag. 2. Together, the workshop group transforms drag into a tool of expressing current political concerns, collective struggles, and visions of a better world. 3. The workshop group will collectively work on performances that will be shown on March 1. As this is an outreach project which provides a safer space for Vienna’s queer and trans community, the performance night is only accessible to invited people.

If you are interested in exploring the evocative force of drag, come join us (Egid aka Lindsay Lowcost, Samu/elle aka La Prince*ss, and Loki aka Sissy Fuss) at next week's drag workshop (Feb. 26 to 29) and/or performance night (March 1, 7 pm). Let's transform drag into a powerful tool of activism and a flower in our hands for community building.
