@Cabaret Voltaire, Athens [May 2018]
Glam Slam, organised by a group of queer artists including FYTA, was an athens-based open-form performance art platform for the presentation of works that do not fit into the narrow frame of a ‘theatrical performance’, but still happen live in front of an audience. It took place once every two or three months and its curatorial and production team varied and fluctuated. Glam Slam! examined the boundaries and dialogue between different types of performance, types that often belong to different disciplines: devised theatre, experimental dance & body art, musical-theatre performance, drag show, conceptual art and performance art, cabaret / burlesque, slam-poetry & hip-hop, interactive happening etc. But above all, Glam Slam! supported projects that had an exploratory and experimental nature, while at the same time leaning towards fun/queer stuff rather than over-serious and existential ones. Four Glam Slam! showcases have taken place in 2018 before the project completed its course.
