Gender is a social construct, as we express it - a performance. Drag, burlesque, queerlesque, vaudeville, cabaret, circus and acrobatic artists work with a gender performance that questions norms and thereby creates a queer space that allows freedoms beyond binary worlds. With humor, eroticism, irony and tragedy, their performance is political and queerfeminist. Nostalgia, pop culture and fashion styles flow into the performance as quotes. The Polaroid visualizes this retro-nostalgia and reminds us of the Carte de la Visite, cards with which the first burlesque actresses presented themselves in the mid-19th century.
