A Pioneers Go East Collective Project

Gemini Stars / Scorpio Stars is devised by Pioneers Go East Collective – a collective of queer artists who research and present LGBTQ and feminist stories. Using live video, vlog content, monologues and music -the work further reflects on coming out stories and self-identifying to the world on youtube, juxtaposed with stories of exclusion and violence in real life. Presenting a humorous look on a bitter topic, the performers reflect on what the community has achieved (or not) using social media. Featuring stories by Daniel Diaz, Julia Dobner-Pereira and Chloe Piazza.

About the Artists

Pioneers Go East Collective creates music-performance that merge storytelling and video documentary. The collective explores stories that are not usually investigated and which reflect social-political vulnerabilities and otherness.
