Do. 01.03.2018 20:00->English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center, Kreuzberg
Artist talk following 'I Am Not A Joke (Take Two)'
Accompanied by a guitar, a synthesizer and drum machine, The Kill Joys sing, scream and perform against daily discriminations and the patriarchy. The music-performance is an appeal against this shit while simultaneously questioning the consumability of feminism. Daniel Brunet invites the audiences to a public discussion with the members of The Kill Joys.1 BECAUSE viewing our work as being connected to our girlfriends-politics-real lives is essential if we are gonna figure out how we are doing impacts, reflects, perpetuates, or DISRUPTS the status quo. (Riot Grrrl Manifesto)2 Daniel Brunet, Produzierende künstlerischer Leiter, English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center3 Marie Golüke, Performerin, Theatermacherin, Theaterscout
What if the 90s Riot Grrrl Movement, 60s Feminist Performance Art and Third World Feminism would have met and collaborated together? The music-performance project THE KILL JOYS whose members are Olivia Hyunsin Kim, Magda Drozd and Company, start with this question in their Concert-Performance. They create a performance where both performers and spectators actively engage while incorporating elements of the 60s Feminist Body Art. All audience members are invited to meet the artists and talk about the concert-performance with other audience members.

About the Venue
English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center
English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center is the German capital’s only producing and presenting organization in the Hauptstadt expressly dedicated to English, the 21st century lingua franca, as the working language. Our year-round programming comprises the Producing Series – Made in Berlin, the Presenting Series, as well as our Performing Series and Pedagogy Series. We are a proud member of Berlin’s freie Szene, the independent performing arts community, and are currently developing platforms to share our work within Germany and abroad. We consciously use theater and performance as living, discursive forms to bring artists and audiences into conversation with each other about our shared city and the greater world we live in.
About the concert-performance
I Am Not A Joke (Take Two)
Feminism has never been so hip and trendy! We could see this as a true victory for feminism and still post a “I’m a feminist” selfie real quick. Let’s be honest. This kind of “high gloss feminism” doesn’t cover up the smell of the shit we encounter every day in the form of sexism, racism and every other kind of possible phobia.

About the artists
The Kill Joys
The Kill Joys (Olivia Hyunsin Kim, Magda Drozd & Co.) examine intersectional feminist issues within the form of a theatrical concert performance. The collective was founded in 2016 and has screamed about what makes them angry in a do-it-yourself style ever since. Using songs and performative actions that focus on their own experiences with everyday racism as well as within the performing arts, they create a feminism that is relevant for them and their concerns as women, artists and immigrants that is certainly not a “feel good” marketing strategy.
