2. Boylesque Drag Festival Berlin 2020
Late Night Extravaganza
By Sheila Wolf
A night full of inspiration, new perspectives and the “obligatory” portion of naked skin: the first Boylesque Drag Festival Berlin.
Berlin has always been a melting pot and a cultural pioneer in Germany. And Boylesque, which is also lovingly referred to as (male) striptease with a storyline already delighted male and female audiences in the late 18th century. In the early 1920s, this art form conquered Berlin’s higher cultural scene before continuing to thrive in the underground. Travesty theatre also has a long and highly respected history, and experienced a worldwide renaissance, even before RuPaul's DRAG RACE.
It therefore makes sense to finally dedicate a festival in Germany to these two cultural treasures. Very much in keeping with the VIENNA BOYLESQUE FESTIVAL, successfully introduced by Jacques Patriaque in Europe and beyond, we want to do away with all gender boundaries and celebrate wonderful people of every sex and gender.
On 15 May in the Wintergarten Varieté and on 16 May in the BAR JEDER VERNUNFT. Diversity, inclusion and joie de vivre are at the heart of both evening events. Start your engines and celebrate difference…!
