Queer Zagreb Festival 2007

Queer Zagreb 2007 is dedicated to the term of 'balcanic queer'. The festival was held for the first time in 2003

‘Artists from Croatia and further thirty or so countries have allowed the festival to introduce the term queer to the local language, to redefine it and make it more contemporary. In many international cooperations with festivals and institutions from Tokyo, New York, Sao Paulo, London and Berlin programmes were created which used Croatian and regional queer experiences and impulses.

The celebratory programme still has an unstoppable desire for intimate experience of queer through art, theory and activism with a special focus on regional geography. Performances include Slovenian National Theatre and a camp explosion by Ivica Buljan. Pravdan Devlahovic finds out about other conditions, and Dragana Alfirevic is pregnant and in that other condition. Young choreographer Matija Ferlin stands alone – in front of himself – and enjoys himself, and the amazing Ivo Dimchev talks about exploiting his own body (and voice) – even for art. The interpret of the life and works of H. C. Zabludovsky, Zeljko Zorica, offers us a treat – memorial plaque to Nazor and Kovacic in a posthumous outing…’ (Text by: Zvonimir Dobrovic, Programme Director)
