LOBOTOM VS PENIS – Husein Oručević, Mostar, BiH
& Logos, BiH
& Logos, BiH
LOBOTOM has managed, through long-term brain research, to come by very important results that tell us in detail about how the elastic and sponge like Corpus Phalus has taken over almost all functions of the human brain. With this evolutionary turning point, all the functions of rational behavior in a human are momentarily trapped by the self-will of the Phalus and transformed in a dimension of the syndrome of "lift-motion."
Today, "lift-motion" decreases the possibility for long-term concentration of humans, it is one of the basic disturbances to more long-term relationships between people of different sexual orientations, marriage is jeopardized because of it, spermatozoids have become the basic product of more long-term human work, while parties, social gatherings, drunkenness and watching games are jeopardized by the continuous interruptions created by the self-will of the "penis dictatorship”! Super hero Lobotom initiates a fight for salvation and preservation of endangered subcultural groups which still resist the syndrome of "lift-motion".

LILI HANDEL –
Ivo Dimchev, Bulgaria/Netherlands
An amazing stage phenomenon and the ability to transform body and voice make Lili Handel and its author Ivo Dimchev an unforgettable event. How we perceive body on stage, how we reduce it to fun and profit, and how we defend and uplift it above time? In her glory days, Lili Handel was probably desirable both from men and women... However, the shine and glamour have disappeared, and she has been turned into a characterless, asexual creature trying to bring back old glory days... Her story is directed at human anxiety caused by the transience of time and the attempt to slow it down... (Tamas Jaszay).
The performance won the award for best acting at the MASK Festival, Szeged, Hungary, 2005.

I WILL SURVIVE & YOU CAN QUEER YOUR LIFE - VIVA LA DIVA, Belgrade, Serbia
Viva La Diva, the first official drag queen in Serbia, started her career just to break down an additional taboo and "conspiracy of keeping quiet", "holy fear" (taboo - holy fear in Polinesian, Freud, Sexology, totem and taboo) of crossing over gender and other boundaries. She started her career with a performance at Women's Studies with Žarana Papić, thinking that the feminists will devour her, but they didn't, they even applauded her warmly. Since then she has often presented herself as a feminist with hairy legs. She only opens her mouth, but is really talking with her own voice, singing, breathing, and playing... with stereotypes of what drag queens are supposed to do. She is famous for saying: Everything is drag... and nearly all straight men are drag queens. Well, no one is a better performer than they are, just think of the amount of effort they invest to play out their role day after day... that should be appreciated.
In Sarajevo, for the first time Viva La Diva will present herself with two performances:
I WILL SURVIVE
You're expecting a party, aren't you? Well, it's just a drag queen's peformance... Jokes, gags, sketches... about sex... for the most part. This is a glamorous (anti)intellectual parody/parodies on growing up in Belgrade and the first attempts at being the queen of a primary school, panic attacks, and a little diva in a country of great repressive miracles, and entering and crossing behind the mirror, and the eternal issue how to survive ?
YOU CAN QUEER YOUR LIFE?
Believe that words and thoughts can cure, heal, transform! Drag Queen pays hommage to the Queen of the New Age! Viva La Diva has always worked therapeutically, to heal, but with innovation too. A new form of activism based on the role model of Louise Hay apply affirming and power to repel homo/ bi/transphobia, heterosexism and heteronormativity, discrimination and violence! We can heal the planet if we gain insight into the power within us and this performance gives us all the necessary techniques to create the world we want to live in.
Just a step to enlightenment with Viva La Diva!
