»Wu Seyen di Chayes?«

»Wu Seyen di Chayes?«

A dysphoric analysis for viewers who have had enough of Sir David Attenborough’s’BBC Nature documentary. ANALI GOLDBERG, the queer psychoanalyst of Berlin’s’nightlife, is very concerned about the poor creatures who have been denied entry to the club: the Pinkwashed Flamingo and its wondrous ability to drink deadly acid, the gender fluid cuttlefish who dresses up as a man or woman for sexual pleasure, the extinct flamboyant Sirenian seacow and many other unusual animals. The myth of Noah’s’ Ark experiences a somewhat different, queer reading: One day, ANALI GOLDBERG believes, the animals will unite and create a new, alternative and inclusive world order, in which no zoos but only clubs would exist.

ANALI GOLDBERG saw the light of day in 2017 in a Berlin club. Anali is an older woman with a big mouth, sagging breasts and a warm deep voice. Always enveloped by a cloud of perfume, she moves like a chameleon from one toilet cubicle to the next while she performs her hit »I gave all my drugs to heterosexual men«. After a lifelong search, she has found her calling – –o give a voice to those who have none: animals. In »Wu Seyen di Chayes?« (Yiddish for »Where are the animals?«) ANALI GOLDBERG goes back to her village and takes the audience with her on an exciting journey of discovery, where the roots of her compassion towards animals have started.
