astonishing works for theatre. Following the success of #losmicrófonos at FLARE15,

Beauty and the Beast by Enis Turan (Turkey and Germany)
Let’s talk about gender baby, let’s talk about you and me… Go crazy and celebrate your dreams and your differences, through the body of a real live superstar. Inspired by the freak shows of the 19th century, this show twists and dissolves body norms and gender binaries.
Balanced on the line between irony and sincerity, Turan’s Beauty and the Beast creates a queertopia unveiling the hollow and senseless constructs of normality.
