un Sacre du Printemps : 
the dancer is sacrificed by exposure ...
respectability could go out of the window
... but what about shyness, in the moment of contact?

  • the performance will last ca. 15 minutes, followed by an optional after-talk
  • enjoy the raw, unfinished, Punk/DIY energy of the dance in-formation,
    the live-failures, the shades of meaning hinted at,
    all to the ongoing beats of "Get out of my Face!" by electro-techno pioneers Cabaret Voltaire, from 1982 ... (on YouTube)

  • this event is Gay-centered (*trans & cis!) and these invitations are sent out personally,
    please do not share lightly

  • you are very much invited to dance & assist/support the performance
    = your way, your dresscode, your moves!

    * the Zoom-meeting will be recorded, if you don't want to appear, remember to turn off your video-camera and microphone

  • in true Gogo-dancer fashion:
    if you are enjoying yourself and the dance, please give/tip generously

    - via Paypal (info@realdancecompany.org)
    - or via SEPA to NL62 ASNB 0942 8261 75 (Real Dance Company) BIC:ASNB NL21

Q&A :
  • what about Gay militancy?
  • how do Joy & Dissent, positive male lust, go with a happy, limp-whimp, undecided energy of an imaginary softie and the Queer F***/Sissy?
  • when our hormones boil over and we are forced to fight for our right to love & exist, kick back & kick ass (with whatever bodypart) -
    how much do we fall back on 'traditional' Patriarchy?

  • this event is performed in honor of Julius Eastman (in his own words) and in protest against his contemporary mis-representation and appropriation by nationally funded, "respectable" institutions and organisations, committing heterosexist-Patriarchal erasure,
    for whatever reason or "good intentions" **
  • lovingly remembering Bayard Rustin and his shrill, high-pitched, energetic voice, full of (com)passion, demanding human rights NOW (video)
  • thinking of Yukio Mishima, his transformation from a "western" dandy to a nationalist Muscle-Macho(Mary), eventually killed by Roses (more)
    and the direct, transformative, Queer energy of Japanese Butoh ...
  • the energy of the FHAR, countless Radical Gay, Queer, Feminist activists, and their fight for a better understanding of our human existence throughout the millennia of our existence,
  • sending trans-formative energy to János Szájer, for finding & speaking his w/hole-some truth ...
