Funded by Postgraduiertenförderung of Hessische Theaterakademie (HTA) and in collaboration with the Bulgarian artist Iva Sveshtarova, I had the opportunity to explore the idea of ‘Hyper-Femininity’, the life of jellyfish and histories of performing femininity in European theatre. Starting point for this research-project was our common fascination for ‘faux’ drag queens – biological women performing hyper-femininity. The claim being ‘faux’ implies a strong statement about the construction of femininity itself: It’s fake. As the lady drag queen ‘Fauxnique’ puts it: ‘I usually say, I’m the fake version of a fake thing’. In this research-project, our artistic dialogue about the issue of hyper-femininity was mapped out in diverse forms and we choose the format of a workshop to share the results with students of the HTA.
