Diane for a day
A very successful and entertaining examination of body norms and gender roles. Beautifully nasty… Go see it!”
Arche-men of the modern era. Concentrated drag masculinity.
A wild gender jamboree.
How are identities made visible on stage - and how can we play with them? Inspired by the drag king workshops by the artist Diane Torr, Diane for a day investigates new ways of dealing with physicality on stage. Not only the performance of gender identities is examined and tested - the theatricality of one’s own privileges as well as those of others become the point of departure for jokes, anger and (self-)empowerment.
The first joint project between of the performers of Theater Thikwa and the artist collective hannsjana poses questions humorously, historiographically and musically to notions of body norms and gender roles both inside and outside of inclusive spaces.
