Reenactments of cinematic strategies, images and fantasies tied to sex work and stage performance are layered on top of each other. They intertwine and form a new entity in a female drag performance referencing 1970s cinema, sex work activism and pop choreography, which was developed in collaboration with the performance artist Liad Hussein Kantorowicz.
