 Bridge Markland: king-ing the drag - drag-ing the king | con-structing the bridge | de-constructing gender

bridge markland postkarte 2018 king ing the drag
The Berlin gender performance legend Bridge Markland talks about her life connected to her art. We will hear anecdotes how experiments with costuming led to her most famous gender performance The most beautiful woman in the world. The performance can be experienced right inbetween the talk sections.

"Bridge Markland’s performance had me entertained from beginning to end. Her raw and interactive gestures towards the audience
make you feel as if you are part of her experience, not just an observer."

"I had no idea what to expect going into Bridge Markland's lecture performance. But what I witnessed was far more then I could have expected.
The performance was sentimental, provocative and entertaining all in one, I highly recommend!"
