Men eat steaks. They drink beer. They burp. They are constantly really hungry. Their energy consumption is higher. Women eat colourful salads. They only want a small piece of cake. They are into low carb. They always say they’ve had enough to eat. They starve themselves. This just shows: Lots of Sexism in our Schnitzel! Henrike Iglesias say: Bullshit! We are hungry and we will stuff ourselves! In their cookery show, performers will serve up our society’s obsession with food and will devour whatever gets in their way.
Henrike Iglesias understand pop cultural and mass media phenomenons as a mirror of societal conditions and grievances. They have made it their goal to illustrate these from an explicitly feminist perspective. A theatre collective based in Berlin and Basel, the main crew consisting of Anna Fries, Laura Naumann, Marielle Schavan and Sophia Schroth, as well as Eva G. Alonso and Malu Peeters. They like to perform as Feminist Killjoys, DJ Henrike Iglesias and as internet users.
