Love me harder
Love me harder
Please note that stroboscopic effects are used in this performance.
Welcome to the erotic cuddle palace! Love me harder is looking for a queer, fluid version of male eroticism that allows insecurities and makes consent a principle. Familiar images of masculinity become fragile and interweave with the story of the Jewish queer main character. What social circumstances and personal experiences shape our desires? And how free are we to live them?

CHICKS* freies performancekollektiv is an independent performance collective uniting various experts and interdisciplinary artists in a queer-feminist network. In thorough research processes, CHICKS* look for what unites their different every-day realities, what drives them, and what they want to get rid of or change. Being queer-feminist, CHICKS* challenge existing social concepts of gender, sexuality, and power. In their performances, they combine interactive and installation-based meeting formats with a visual theatre of objects and atmospheres. CHICKS* devise theatre productions and interactive performance formats. They also organise workshops, seminars, and trainings in the fields of queer-feminist and sexual education using means of performative theatre for young adults and grown-ups, professionals, and amateurs.
