Dr Strangefolks

How to decide the fate of life and deny everything

“They are not only ruling over our fate, but deciding what we are going to eat, how we should dress or when we should call our mothers…” chirped the non-fascist bird. This project is committed to the development of imaginative, anti-colonial and feminist futures to come after the end of capitalism. Through a participatory event we aim to trigger this experience together with you.

This fake conference piece opens in a colonial, marble floor setting and moves on to a roundtable meeting room which refers to the ‘war room’ in Dr. Strangelove movie (Stanley Kubrick 1964). In Kubrick’s film white heterosexual males decide the fate of humanity against the fast approaching doomsday, but this time we ponder the end of the world from perspectives of “strange people”. How would it affect the power dynamics of the whole world if those people at the war room are replaced by non-normative anti-patriarchal bodies?

Expect the unexpected and join this feast of decolonial improv performance in which everybody gets to play a part.
In honour to ancestors like Ana Mendieta, Marielle Franco and so many females that couldn’t finish their works.
