My name is Paweł Świerczek. I come
from Poland and I don’t really consider myself being a performer. I use different types of expression to do what I do. I do many different things
in the field of queer practice. I will present a piece called “Of Coal and Rainbow”. This is a piece about queer identity in the region of Silesia where
I come from, where my origins are. This is a very specific region of Poland. It was divided between Germany, Poland and Czech Republic historically and which is a
mining region. The story presented in this piece is about the miner and the
drag queen, the oldest drag queen in Silesia. And I am asking in this piece what do
they have in common.
