55 Shades of Gay: Balkan Spring of Sexual Revolution

By Qendra Multimedia (Kosovo)
Written by Jeton Neziraj
Directed by Blerta Neziraj


55 Shades Of Gay: Balkan Spring of Sexual Revolution is a contemporary burlesque story about LGBTI politics in the Balkans and Europe by the acclaimed Kosovar playwright Jeton Neziraj. Local Balkan politicians try to manipulate and deceive EU officials and the humanitarian mercenaries of international NGOs often exploit the homophobic environment to raise funds, while EU officials, using their superior financial and political position, try to subjugate everyone. This politically incorrect, provocative performance poses the question, “Is sexual liberation possible in the Balkans?”

Produced and performed by an eminent team of theater artists from Kosovo, Germany, France and Serbia, 55 Shades of Gay has been directed by award-winning directress Blerta Neziraj, member of Lincoln Center Theater Lab. Her shows have been successfully presented across Europe, in more than 30 international theatre festivals and theatre venues.
