KALEIDO x Queer Amsterdam

Camp, glitter, (no)talent, community: Kaleido is here and proud!

We are KALEIDO: a glittering collective of queer performers who facilitate shows that blur the line between performer and spectator by sharing the stage with the anybody who would like to show their (no) talent.

ย 

Get ready for a vibrant evening filled with drag, glitter, comedy, entertaining lip-syncs, and hilarious and touching performances. And, of course, there will be dancing afterwards.

ย 

We organise KALEIDO in the spirit of the Radical Faeries' No Talent Show. This non-movement began in the 1980s in America as a radical alternative to the conformity of the normative gay movement, and has since spread to many parts of the world. Inspired by feminist, ecological, communist, and anarchist thought, principles such as equality, autonomy, and self-expression are central to the Faeries. This self-expression is most powerfully expressed during the famous No Talent Shows.Our collective is a vibrant assembly of Radical Faeries, enchanted by the magic of the No Talent Show and eager to spread and multiply the spirit of this creative whirlwind.

ย 

During our shows, we perform as a collective around a stimulating theme where we playfully question current themes within society. Topics we have previously explored include queer parenting, substance use, heteronormativity during Christmas, and finding your crowd in the big city. Between our acts, the stage is open to all imaginable acts and performers. For performers, absolutely anything is allowed! Whether itโ€™s serenading non-binary identity, pole dancing, mounting microphones on a plastic ball and rolling over it, letting moss speak, or being a tech magician... Let yourself get surprised by some of the most crazy (no) talents within the community.
