Only one thing unites us: our assholes. In Brazilian: cu. CUTEKO is more than a dirty ass party. Think of an asshole manifesto; an asshole speech; a critical beijo grego; an ass-shaking response to the global right-wing currents that are trying to delimit queer bodies in present-day political geographies from Brazil and back; CUTEKO is our Brazilian queer cu contra o fascismo. We are Brazilian migrants, cuír, trans, nonbinary, artists, choreographers, futuristic lesbians, human rights activists, whores, fast feminists, and above all, Marielles. We reject colonial views of our nudity and sexuality. We are not your cheap carnival—but on our own terms, we are proudly cheap. We won’t stay silent in the face of Bolsonaro’s fascism in Brazil. We won’t stay silent in the face of any fascism at all. But we don’t speak ‘weapons’. We talk pajubá! With art, love, dance, friendship and our assholes.
Hereby we invite you to CUTEKO: an evening of Brazilian queer feminist performances and juicy DJ sets! For that, our incredible Vita Evangelista and Mavi Veloso are curating a bold performance program; our Brazilian DJ Kupa Lua lives in Berlin and is coming to Amsterdam to get us soaked (obrigade, Kupa! You are amazing!); we are equally excited to welcome DJ Hajar into the família! And finally: we are stoked to announce that the São Paulo based LGBTQI+ collective Chernobyl is joining us !!! It’s going to be summer and we want to see skin, bikinis, glitter, colors, beach towels, and anything that makes you feel hot.
19h – 20h WOMXN THAT COULDN’T FINISH THEIR WORKS, an action by We Fuck Patriarchy and Racism Collective. Please note: the performance will take place at Dam. We’ll walk to Vrankrijk together for an open conversation after.
21h performance by Fernando Belfiore
22h – 03h DJ Hajar – DJ Kupalua – Chernobyl
