Dyke Dogs Salon

A queer-lesbian cultural performance by Lynn Takeo Musiol, Eva Tepest and guests

Lynn would like a dog but doesn’t have a flat. Eva would like one too, but wonders whether it’s okay to be master over another living creature. Both dream of a warm, breathing product of their love: their Dyke Dog.

How is the world narrated from a queer lesbian point of view? How can we generate awareness without performing woke visibility? What is the context in which I replicate myself and my desire on a daily basis? And what indication does it provide for what a supportive future might look like?

Bolshy, assertive, recalcitrant and playful, the »Dyke Dogs« want to focus on the perspective of queers and lesbians and »take into account more than just mainstream society«.

Following their opening event which looked at lesbian visibility in the theatre, a fair on the trail of Brandenburg’s LAND DYKES and a lesbian Church of Shame on the occasion of Assumption Day, the DYKE DOGS SALON is continuing to constantly reinvent itself with each edition in the second half of the season. Lynn, Eva and their guests will be casting a dyke look at the women’s football world cup, reflecting on the intersectional connections between homosexuality and classism, and inviting the audience to play freely on the stage.

DYKE DOGS SALON is a series of events curated by the collective of the same name which comprises Eva Tepest and Lynn Takeo Musiol. Both have studied something related to sociology, have water signs in their horoscopes and grew up in the post-industrial Rhineland. They have been writing, curating and performing together since 2018. Their maxim: Dyke is a riot. Dyke is tragic. Dyke is always insufficient.
