QUEER BEOGRAD BORDER FUCKERS CABARET – THE SCRIPTS
The Queer Beograd Script book is a compilation of the scripts written and performed as part of the Queer Beograd Border fuckers Cabaret between 2004 and 2011. It features 18 scripts many of which were performed in Beograd and also those which were written for performances in London (Transfabulous), Linz, Berlin and Athens. In addition to the scripts, the book contains an introductory text which describes the formation of the cabarets, the collaborative process in writing with local activists and some back stories on the scripts.
The book features some beautiful illustrative work, I was extremely lucky to be able to work with designer Ola Podgorska, using photographs from the original performances by Biljana Rakocevic, Ola has produced a beautiful and coherent design for the book which reflects the written and performative style of the cabaret itself.
Here for the first time all of the Queer Beograd Border Fuckers Cabaret scripts are published as one complete collection. A bi-lingual edition, printed in black and white on 80gsm paper with a full colour cover printed on 250 gsm card.
When I first began work on the script book I wanted to produce something that felt integrated, where the flow of design worked through the book as a whole and that design matched the original ethos of the performance works. I wanted the book to be a beautiful thing to hold. Now after a LONG HAUL of fundraising and finally printing the book, it really is a beautiful treasure.
