Queerberg Soli party – 3rd Anniversary with All Stars Refugee performers
30. Oktober 21:00 - 31. Oktober 04:00
For their third anniversary, the Queerberg Collective has prepared a fairytale show.
The Queerberg Collective (House of Royals) was founded in 2015 by Queer BIPOC Refugee performers in a small venue in Kreuzberg. It was very difficult for refugee newcomer performers to get performance opportunities from many other parties and venues due to communication, professionalism and language issues. The collective decided to join forces, build their own space and invite other BIPOC newcomer artists to their stages. After one year, we celebrated the one-year anniversary with the special, choreographed, theatrical and musical show Queer/ Drag Aladdin.
On 30 October at Oyoun, the Queerberg Collective will perform the fairy tale of Cinderella - but in their own way. First of all, in their case, Cinderella is not white, as the white media and film productions would have us believe. Needless to say, she will also not fit into heteronormative ideas and for this reason, she will not lose a shoe, but a wig at the ball - and it will not be thrown for boring upper-class straight princes and princesses that uphold class inequality. The founder of the Queerberg collective Prince Emrah will host the Cinderella show as narrator and guide us through the evening. The performers will treat the audience to oriental dance, burlesque, Bollywood performances, drag shows and music. They want to provide the comfort of imagination fairy tales hold but make them more colorful, more political and, of course, much more queer. We are looking forward to an evening of joy, power, representation, and fantastic performances.

Queerberg is a collective founded by House Of Royals. We are from so far different countries and cultures. It started with Refugee performers to give them space to express their Art, since it was hard for them because of variety of reasons such as language difficulties, racism etc... As a group of refugees, we also have a deep mental connection and understanding with each other, we bond over our trauma, since we have similar background. Although most of us lost their families, but we still have each other to support. And thanks to many places that support us and validate us, we've grown and come so far. IG: @queerberg_soliparty
