EAST SIDE SKIN

NOW ON DVD

Powerful performances in Aputheatre's East Side Skin explore the sexual and political attraction of the far right.

The action takes place in Berlin 2003, where a towering new city is growing out of a country still divided by past history and present economics. Against this backdrop of contradiction and uncertainly, Horst and David meet. The two men are opposites. Horst is a German new fascist, ill at ease with his homosexuality. David is young, gay and Dutch, repelled yet at the same time attracted to Horst’s neo-Nazi view of the world. Through mutually inflicted rituals of argument, sex and pain they reach a conclusion that surprises both of them.

East Side Skin is written and directed by John Roman Baker. The characters of Horst and David are portrayed by Malte Hutthoff and Marcel Romeijn.

 

A Queer Fantasia on Neo-Nazi Berlin originally presented as part of the cultural programme of Amsterdam Pride 2003.

Inspiration for the play dame from the political phenomenon that occurred in the Netherlands last year with the rise and subsequent death of Pim Fortuyn. Rod Evan, the coordinator of Aputheatre explains, ‘In just a few short months a huge swathe of the Dutch population shifted their politics to the right, inspired by the right-wing rhetoric and charisma of a gay man. The man himself was brutally shot down but politics in the Netherlands changed irrevocably after his death.’
