The Post-Queer Dilemma
What does »post-queer« mean in a world where living queerness often remains an unachieved ideal?
The Post-Queer Dilemma takes post-queer theory – the demand for further development of the concept of queerness – as the starting point for a questioning of relationships and forms of community. Five performers and a musician ask: How can bodies and communities move with each other in a state of constant becoming?And, what does it mean to be »open to the unpredictable, indeterminable future« (Deleuze and Guattari)?
Guy Marsan explores representations of queerness and heteronormativity in a stage-filling interplay of movement, sound, scenography, and scenic research. He takes up stereotypical movement patterns as well as everyday experiences, past and present challenges of queer biographies in order to question and transform them. In The Post-Queer Dilemma, he explores a dense web of entanglements together with the performers, not to create a vision of the future, but to radically explore (post)-queer relationships now.
