Hoffentlich Verschleiert (Hopefully Veiled)
Formerly on tour as The Floor Beauticians, Serpil Pak and Nursel Köse now bring their comedic talent to UC Berkeley! Come see these two German Turkish entertainers forge an intercultural dialogue between the Oriental headscarf and the Occidental bikini. Nursel Köse, the blonde-at-heart Teutonic Sultana, shining like a Bollywood star. Serpil Pak, the Oriental Valkyrie, trans-sex-cultural multiple-personality word-acrobat.
Live performance (in German) followed by a discussion on "Humor as Strategy," moderated by Professor Deniz Göktürk (UC Berkeley).
Presented by the German Department, the Goethe-Institut San Francisco, the Institute for European Studies, and the Multicultural Germany Project. Free and open to the public
