Queerslam

PICK OF THE DAY Spoken word
In the organizer's words:

Hello art enthusiasts, poetry slam fans and queers!

Queerslam is back at last! Six poets vie for the audience's favor in the competition. They must adhere to three rules: they may only perform texts they have written themselves, they may not use props and they may not be on stage for longer than what feels like six minutes. The texts are often as varied as the performers themselves. They are funny, loud, political, touching, thought-provoking and perhaps a little strange. In a good way.

On this evening, only queer artists will be on stage to make spoken word spaces more colorful and to explicitly make people who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community heard.

There will be a cheeky moderator and a featured artist to prepare the audience for the sport of words.

We strive to make our events as safe as possible so that everyone feels comfortable and can participate in great art. Any form of discrimination has no place here. In order to live up to this claim, we have an awareness person on site who is available during the event for questions, criticism and emotional support. Above all, we want to help create queer safe spaces in which all participants can enjoy culture without having to pretend. So come as you are: colorful, loud, covered, alone or in groups: however u feel comfortable.

Admission starts at 6 pm, the slam at 7 pm. Admission is by donation at the Box Office. Pay what you want!
