A theatrical experience in a parallel universe where sexuality is a choice.
Queertopia is a conversion machine; no matter what your sexual preference is when you enter, you come out as queer. Because sexual preference is a choice. At least, in the parallel reality that the creators sketch for you.
In this immersive theatrical experience, in which the public debate surrounding love and sexuality is questioned: the LGBTQ+ lobby is thriving and its propaganda has penetrated every corner of society. The movement introduces a new conversion method. You now have the opportunity to rediscover yourself and enter one of the conversion machines as a participant.
What happens when we shape a world in which we don't try to define love and attraction? When love isn't part of a political agenda? What remains is the realization that our diversity is actually our strength. That we don't have to frame others. That ambiguity actually gives us more freedom.
With this project, creators Luit Bakker and Bart van de Woestijne open the conversation about emancipation. Together with the audience, they search for a new language for loving. The participant's personal experience is a valuable entry point for discussion about diversity, inclusion, and what queerness can mean for the world.
Queertopia can be experienced May 17th until May 20th. This immersive theater experience will take approximately 60 minutes and will be performed in English. Tickets for regular admission are €8,00, for students €5,00 and for WAP pasholders free.
