Ghost Times

A Queer Journey Through Theatre

studio brut, Zieglergasse 25, 1070 Vienna
Performance / Theatre World Premiere in German and English
{queer reading of theatre history} {experiment & discourse} {critique & humour}

In Ghost Times, two ghost narrators take the audience on an episodic journey into the depths of theatre history. Various performance artists and political activists take a queer and de-colonial view on iconic moments of the classic theatre canon, introducing their personal perspectives. They focus on surprising topics, figures and ideas behind the “great stories” and present a critical and ironic aspect of self-empowerment.

The Queering Theatre Project – Ghost Journeys

There is a waiting list on the respective event days, which is available from 7 pm and over which the few remaining tickets are assigned, if occasional audience should not appear.

At the beginning, they present the broad range of eras which they intend to cover, when a cyborg from the remote future looks back on the myths from antiquity and the evolvement of gods and goddesses, theatre and democracy. Performative time travels take us back and forth: Back in the year 1638, the white colonialist Theatrum Mundi gets destroyed by Brazilian performers in a melodramatic healing process. A Magic Flute Compost includes queer characters, trans-aria and black self-empowerment from post-revolutionary 1791. The great German Faust is confronted with Witchcraft Vouge Dancing. The audience will definitely lose its orientation.

Performance artists, activists and theorists from more than 15 countries have come together to realise the two-year que_ring drama project, questioning the classic canon of theatre history as a cultural construction of the West that leaves out many aspects. The Viennese performance artist and activist Gin Müller, who has already realised many projects at brut, came up with the general idea of Ghost Times.

There will be an audience talk after the performance on 16 October.
