Red Dawns will rise for the 10th
time! Over the years, the festival has transformed and grown under the
influence of all the people that participated, debated, reacted and
witnessed our ravagings. What used to be a women's fest turned into an
eclectic feminist-queer celebration that cares less about adjectives
and more about adverbs, asking: How? When? Why?
And what is a
feminist-queer festival? Is it sex or gender? Is it politics or party?
Is it history or future? Is it contra or pro? Is it angry or horny? Is
it just like you, or something completely different? All of the above?
We want freedom, justice and love for all, but we know that the way
there is mined with contradictions and struggle, just as it always was.
Red Dawns fest is going to take time to explore our utopian
feminist-queer possibilities and deal with reality... You are invited
so that we can, most importantly, do it together!
