THE BAD BREAST: OR, THE STRANGE CASE OF THEDA LANGE

„I’m worried about my son’s homosexuality! I’m afraid… he might not be one.“ When psychoanalysis meets Bruce LaBruce, things get hilaroiusly nasty. A flamboyantly beautiful mother (queen Susanne Sachsse, of course) walks through the streets, followed by a voluptous naked stalker (Ms Vaginal Davis, of course) and rants on about the failed attempts to make her son gay: „I tried my best!“ Video originally produced for a performance at HAU.

SERIOUS LADIES

Susanne Sachsse’s debut as director has herself star in a variety of female figures that discuss their roles as women, actresses and mothers. The voice-over narration is a social and political discourse, all words are translated into English handwriting that appears inside the images. A beautfully camp manifesto against gender roles, expectations and conventions by one of the most fearless and amazing performers of our days – Susanne Sachsse.

PIERROT LUNAIRE

Bruce LaBruce’s majestic anti-opera based on the play by Arnold Schoenberg re-interprets Pierrot through a breathtakingly hot transgender performance by Susanne Sachsse. Expect nothing less than beautiful black-and-white images with a touch of neon, a very Brechtian soundtrack sung by la Sachsse himself and some very, very appetizing go-go dancers whose butts are so tight they are bouncing off the walls. Oh yeah, and needless to say: There will be dildos and cocks and ejaculations but, you know, it’s art. Winner of the Teddy jury prize this year, premiered at Forum Expanded, originally a play at HAU.
