Celebrate inclusion #loveislove

Das Vienna Boylesque Festival vereint außergewöhnliche Künstler mit einem außergewöhnlichen Publikum. Denn: Boylesque ist nicht der LGBT-Community vorbehalten, sondern begeistert unabhängig der sexuellen Orientierung. „Bei uns stehen nicht die Nackerpatzerln im Vordergrund sondern viel eher das Spiel mit Klischees. Es geht darum, über den Tellerrand zu schauen, aber natürlich auch, zu unterhalten und zu überraschen“, so Jacques Patriaque, der das Pendant zum Burlesque, dem erotischen Animiertanz mit Unterhaltungsfaktor, in Österreich salonfähig gemacht hat. 2014 holte er Burlesque, Boylesque, Artistik und alles dazwischen erstmals nach Wien und damit nach Europa. Seither fasziniert er damit eine wachsende Zuschauerzahl. „Im Publikum sitzt meine Mama neben einer Drag Queen und zwei Reihen weiter unterhält sich ein Geschäftsmann mit einem unserer Künstler. Boylesque verbindet und das zeigt sich auch sehr deutlich, wenn man den Saal betritt und die Stimmung in sich einsaugt“, so Patriaque weiter, der auch 2018 wieder selbst die Hüften schwingen und die Tassel feurig kreisen lassen wird. Und: Seiner Einladung folgen nicht weniger als 40 internationale Größen der Szene, um mit Tanz, Akrobatik, Gesang und Varieté Geschichten zu erzählen. Brennende Leidenschaft inklusive.

Bio

Austria’s Mavi Phoenix blends pop, rap, and R&B into a hard-to-classify but catchy mix. Born Marlene Nader to a family with Syrian roots (her grandfather came to Vienna in the ’70s as a refugee), the rapper-singer/songwriter-multi-instrumentalist grew up attending English-speaking schools and listening to rock acts such as David Bowie and Queens of the Stone Age. When she was 11, she began playing guitar and producing her own music in GarageBand after her father gave her an old MacBook. Her musical tastes grew to include Kanye West and Drake, as well as Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga, and Nader chose the performing name Mavi Phoenix as a tribute to actor River Phoenix as well as for its symbolic meaning of renewal. In 2013, Phoenix won Lautstark, an Austrian music competition; she followed this success with her 2014 debut EP, My Fault, which featured the single „Green Queen.“ Though she began studying political science in 2015, she released the M.P. collaboration „Little by Little“ that year. In 2016, she issued „Quiet,“ the lead track from her 2017 EP Young Prophet, which also spawned the singles „Love Longtime,“ „Fly,“ and „Aventura.“
