acting in concert proposes musical practices of gender and genre bending. Here, concerts and discussion platforms negotiate how music, queer and postcolonial practices can engage actively with contemporary questions – and the ways in which they already do.
Together with Neda Sanai, Lala &ce, Iku, Born in Flamez, Shaheen Wacker, Mhysa, Larry B, slimgirl fat and COOL FOR YOU, acting in concert imagines a different present that could also be ours. Ours? The titular instruction is to be taken literally and personally: acting together, in concerts - and beyond. Not drowning out the assembled differences, but making them audible.
Thanks for this cute and super lovely edition of acting in concert festival. Thanks to the participants for all being mindblowing. And thanks to everyone there and everyone involved for creating such a warm and open space, where the people took care of each and every one. Thanks to the always caring and amazing people who helped and supported the festival; Lea Hopp, Manischa Eichwalder, Tobias Malcharzik, Maxi Wallenhorst, Michael Tsouloukidse, Sonja Schulze-Trautmann, Michael Burger, Henk Niehues, Frederik Bury, Kata Kern, Jan Hagelstein, Jonathan Feller, Carla Wisselmann, Theresa Wong, Julia Krebber, Melina Schwab.
