RED DAWNS CARNIVAL BENEFIT PARTY

Saturday, February, 9th 2013, at 22.00,
in Menza pri koritu,
ACC Metelkova mesto

for the 14th International Feminist and Queer Festival Red Dawns

happening from March 5th until 10th 2013 at Metelkova.

The team of feminist and queer festival, Red Dawns, is now working at full speed. The 14th festival is just around the corner, taking place between 6th and 9th of March, 2013. You can express your support for the festival on Carnival Saturday Night, when all contents, forms and species of sexed distortions, straightenings and fluidities are going to pop up. The theme of the evening is ‘gender freak show‘, and all kinds of gendered binarisms and fluidities are going to be more than appreciated.

The programme:
Have you always wanted to sing in front of a big audience? Have you always been dreaming about the minute of fame? Would you like to show to the world what you’re capable of? If you answered the above questions with yes, we have incredible news for you. All this and much more will be possible on the Carnival Saturday night with our conductor,Meta. There will be an opportunity for the minute of fame, and, rest assured, there will be the audience for all your operatic screeching and gentle roaring. You will have no other choice but to get your guts up and jump onto the stage.

DJ programme with GroßUndArtig
When karaoke finishes, you will be gently swinged about by two grandiose, brilliant and widely acclaimed DJs DjaneGroßUndArtig in the rhythms of electropop-female-dancy-hip-to-hop-alles kind of music.Before, in between, and after dancing you will have no choice but to indulge yourself in delicious drinks, hand-printed shirts, aprons, and other stuff for the decoration of your costumes. There will also be a Lottery of Destiny, where you will be able to gamble for the brand new future. The decoration of the supernaturally good atmosphere will be taken care for byAlota Trash team.Anyways – be it your wish to spend your Carnival Saturday night in an unusual, exciting, super hot, swelling, in other words, cracking, amazing, incredible way – this is just the place for you.

Dresscode: »Genderfreakshow«
Entrance fee: before midnight 3EUR with costumes/4 EUR without costumes, after midnight 4 EUR with costumes/5 EUR without costumes
