The existence of queer love remains a blind spot, as Annika Socolofsky (winner of the Gaudeamus Award 2021) discovered when a group of professional detectives kept trying to hit on her friend during a night out – without realising she was clearly not straight. This formed the starting point for her new piece, performed by HIIIT: the most progressive percussion ensemble in the Netherlands and far beyond, formerly known as Slagwerk Den Haag.

Preceded by K-ourante by Jinwook Jung, which builds a bridge between gender representation in K-pop culture and 17th and 18th-century France.
