Annalyzer / Covic / de Rooij / Jina / Mdluli / Schupp – PINK MON€Y
MON€Y is performance, party and protest in one.
‘Pink money’ is the cash spent by LGBTIQ+ tourists on travel so that they can spend their holidays in ‘safe’ spaces. ‘Pink money’ is the currency with which you can buy tolerance, provided you have the necessary cash.
But where are safe spaces today? The few remaining zones where (sexual) freedom and autonomy are still possible are for sale – and in countries like South Africa, they are often paid for by the dollars of white, polyglot bohemians.
In PINK MON€Y, an international collaboration between South Africans Annalyzer, Kieron Jina and Mbali Mdluli, Dutch artists Djana Covic and Nico de Rooij along with Antje Schupp from Switzerland, the theatre becomes an LGBTIQ+ club. The audience moves freely between dance floor, bar, DJ and two stages. In this club-cum-theatre, homophobia and racism are denounced, while the queer community is celebrated.
PINK MON€Y makes a powerful plea for individuality, diversity, self-determined love and tolerance.
After its premiere in Soweto in 2017, PINK MON€Y successfully toured Switzerland and Germany, and now returns to South Africa.
