“Keep on Dancing Till The World Ends”

20. July 2017 17:00

A Manifestation-Parade from Motzstraße 24 (Speisekammer im Eldorado) to Schwules Museum*, Lützowstrasse 73, led by Dusty Whistles.

Starting at the foot of the former legendary “Eldorado,” Dusty Whistles, posthuman drag monolith and queen of the night, will perform an invocation redrawing the lines through the past of our queer ancestry towards our very uncertain futures, drenched in the pregnancy of our temporal becomings. It is a call for strength, a recentering in struggle, and a song of gratitude for those whom we have lost, ending in a parade, prancing through the local “gayborhood,” accompanied by song, poetry, dance, and drag performance.

Dusty Whistles is a posthuman drag performer and multidisciplinary artist coming from New York. Her drag persona is a living network of relation expressed through a point of multiple intersections of lifeforms and experiences. She has been a resident of Berlin for the last 10 years, participating in the cities political counter culture and artistic communities. She is self taught in her artistic disciplines, and came of age as a drag performer under the care and community fostered by the immortal goddess Olympia Bukkakis. She is the “mother”/founder of Faux Real, Berlin’s first and only drag performance night featuring exclusively the art of women and trans drag performers, and her work has been shown in various drag performance evenings in Berlin’s nightlife. She has also shown her work in Berlin’s artistic institutions, such as the nGbK, Schwules Museum, Gemäldegalerie, Volksbühne Rote Salon, Ballhaus Naunynstrasse, and the Kunstfabrik am Flutgraben.
