east of what?

caner teker

With “east of what?”, caner teker honours “köçekler”, young, androgynous dancers in the Ottoman Empire of the 18th century, who were also known as sex workers. From a Turkish-German perspective, the performance examines their stories as queer subjects, interweaves sensual movement vocabulary and thus challenges sexualising and orientalising gazes.
