In ‚Blutsbrüder‘, the last part of the trilogy ‚finding Germany elsewhere‘ by Berlin theatre maker Jochen Roller, a group of women with Indian, Indigenous, Postmigratory and/or German identities lay hands on Winnetou, the Fetish of all German Indianthusiasts. The epos by Karl May is being re-narrated from a decolonial, queer and feminist perspektive. The format of the evening oscillates between Ethnic Drag Cabaret, ARTE-Documentary, Techno Rave and Shadow Theatre. After ‚Trachtenbummler‘ (2013) and ‚Them and Us‘ (2015), this evening exoticizes again Sophiensaele by applying a reliable mixture of ideology, entertainment, investigative journalism and high fashion.
