Are all gay men interior designers, good listeners and great at baking?! The goddesses of fag gods & friends question identity, cultural practices and belonging in their semi-autobiographical, social-anthropological performance Ganz billig*. In conversation with the audience the friends celebrate their characteristics, differences and conflicts to show what gay, queer or other life currently is: what childhood memories do they share, whose behaviors are uncannily similar and which traumas are still haunting them? Between pop culture and too private stories an associative round dance of scenes, a revue existing of different viewpoints on »gay culture« emerges. But nothing is exactly as the stereotype: Hold on to your forks – we are blowing up your cake tin!

fag gods & friends is collective from Berlin, Zürich and Vienna: Ronald Berger is a dancer, Moritz Sauer a performer and Paul Spittler is a director. But that actually doesn’t matter, because after collaborating in different constellations they finally get on stage together for the first time for Ganz billig*!

Running time: ca. 100 min.
Mainly in German.
