The Berdache festival [Gender Art Festival] returns to Hospitalet del Llobregat with more queer artistic disciplines, to explore the expressions of gender, identity and diversity that are sheltered under the LGTBIQ letters.
Thus, the festival celebrates its third edition, the first without restrictions due to the pandemic, with a more extensive line-up and with great national and international emerging talents.
Berdache consolidates itself one more year as the first festival that explores the artistic disciplines crossed by gender identity and sexual diversity in Spain. The 2022 poster offers 13 proposals that oscillate between the visual and performing arts, and includes names of emerging national and international talents, such as Álvaro Sola, Ángelo Nestore, Dorian Wood or Fera y las Disidentes, among others.
All the proposals start from an intimate place, specific to each person, and which is currently becoming more and more politicized: desire as the engine of transgression with respect to socially imposed gender roles. Therefore, the organization of the festival states that "they firmly believe that a better world is a freer world and that this, without a doubt, is a world where diversity is the norm."
Tickets are available on the festival's official website and, for the first time, Berdache offers the possibility of acquiring a general voucher to attend all the concerts and performances.
Berdache [Gender Art Festival] was inaugurated on October 18 and for 12 days it will fill 5 spaces in Hospitalet with different disciplines such as poetry, music, cinema and dance. All the proposals are united by the vocation to explore gender and identity from the infinite possibilities of art.
