The queer folk theatre guerrilla Nesterval makes theatre for people who normally find theatre boring. With immersive settings and performances in empty buildings, the Viennese theatre group directly involves its audience and turns theater into an addictive experience. In their hometown, their plays sell out within minutes, and at the 2021 Summer Festival their three-week takeover of the Uebel & Gefährlich club also became a crowd-pleaser with long queues. Now the 25-member team is coming back to Hamburg to present a play throughout the whole festival period on nearly 2000sqm of the former storage shed at Baakenhöft in Hafencity. As in other Nesterval works, the group deals with historical events and now addresses an urgent topic: the systematic persecution and murder of homosexual and trans people by the Nazis. In 25 rooms and over three hours, the audience is immersed in an imaginary world based on real biographies, gets caught up in a vortex of fiction and reality, and finally ends up in the canteen of an imaginary porcelain factory with a Varieté program. Here, members of the Nesterval family, factory workers and neighbors meet. At night, as the story goes, the company canteen becomes an unofficial bar for people outside the heterosexual norm – and the center of a lingering evening of theatre.
