Queer Art Projects Presents
Turkish Delight: A Bilingual Queer Night Vol 2
The sweetest queer night in town is back!
If you came to the first Turkish Delight in November, we are pretty sure, you are rushing to buy your ticket to the second instalment right now, without a pause to read this!
Same goes for those of you who didn’t make it to the first Turkish Delight, but have a friend (or a friend of a friend) who did!
Yes, it was that good!
And for those of you who have been too out of touch to have heard the buzz, this is how our queer night unfolds:
We have non-stop Turkish pop music, from the classics of Ajda Pekkan to the latest hits of Aleyna Tilki. All your favorite songs to sing along and dance to: Tarkan, Sezen, Yıldız, Hande, Demet, Gülşen, Atiye, Sıla… you name it, we will play it.
Then there are the performances: to die for belly dancers, sexy lip-syncers, “faux-my-ass” drag queens, go-go boys, queer performance artists.
All the performances at “Turkish Delight: A Bilingual Queer Night” are in the tradition of “the queer art of failure”: perfectionism, professionalism, mastery, even experience should not be expected from the performers on stage.
Think of it as an experience akin to the Eurovision Song Contest where top points are given to all neighbouring countries, even if they suck, as long as they are kitsch enough. So don’t be shy to answer the call below:
CALL FOR PERFORMERS: Turkish Delight: A Bilingual Queer Night, has a queer, kitsch, oriental flavour. Add your spice to the mix with any type of performance you might have in mind by sending a short description of your proposed performance to firstname.lastname@example.org
