55 Shades of Gay
About 55 Shades of Gay
LGBTI politics in the Balkans and Europe by acclaimed Kosovar playwright Jeton Neziraj. In a historically homophobic environment, local Balkan politicians try to manipulate and deceive EU officials; humanitarian mercenaries of international NGOs exploit intolerance for economic gains; and EU officials use their superior financial and political positions to subjugate everyone. This provocative, politically incorrect performance poses the question, “Is sexual liberation possible in the Balkans?”
Produced and performed by an eminent team of theater artists from Kosovo, Germany, France, and Serbia, 55 Shades of Gay is directed by award-winning directress Blerta Neziraj, a member of Lincoln Center Theater Lab. Her shows have been successfully presented across Europe in more than 30 international festivals and theatre venues.
