Kammer 3




“Men” eat steaks. They drink beer. They belch. They don’t use serviettes. They could “eat a horse”. They burn more energy. “Women,” on the other hand – “women” eat eye-catching salads, and muesli for breakfast. They’ll only have a little slice of cake. They go on low-carb diets. They know what’s healthy. They’re already “full up to here.” They starve. “Women” cook, “men” eat. Lots of sexism in my Schnitzel. The queer-feminist theatre collective Henrike Iglesias says: Bullshit! We’re hungry, and we’re stuffing ourselves! In their cooking show, the four performers serve up the public’s obsession with food, do cooking competitions and wonder when our constant preoccupation with food began – and how, at thirty-something, women can still be living in fear that someone might tell from their bodies that they’re not in control of their lives. And all that with their mouths full.
