Ernest Ah, Sabrina Saase, and Lee Stevens researched stories of everyday resistance and dissident cultural production in the GDR opposition archive. The resulting audio play addresses lesbian and trans* initiatives, as well as the East German womens* movement in the context of (counter-) cultural and utopian realities.
Walkmen can be borrowed from the bar during the festival period.
