Tobias Malcharzik & Co. “COMEBACK” / Pauline Jacob “Prächtiger Vogel Leierschwanz”

Part of “Performing Arts Festival Berlin 2020”


German / 

“COMEBACK” draws upon a drag performance that Tobias Malcharzik put on in the gymnasium of his elementary school. In a game of holding on tight to memories and fictionalization, a picture puzzle of queer childhood experiences comes into focus. Somewhere between (re)construction and searching, the interview fragments, songs by Britney Spears, the Chicken Dance as well as imagination come together to form a fragmentary duet of past and future.
