BAD MOUSE ORCHESTRA
DRUNK WITH LOVE
A highlight program for queer artists of the early 20th century
We want to drag the music and songs of queer composers and performers, especially unknown ones, of the early 20th century out of the mists of time and into the light of the presence, so that the forgotten melodies and lyrics can be heard on European stages once again. The central goal is to make the diversity of queer creative power of that era visible. Featured in this program are the hauntingly beautiful, witty and charming songs of Bruz Fletcher, Gene Malin, Ma Rainey, Tony Jackson, Gladys Bentley, Cole Porter, Ray Bourbon and many more.
This program is still being developed but can already be booked for 2020. A full studio album with an extensive booklet will be released in spring 2020. We are currently researching and traveling to different archives worldwide to make this project as historically and culturally valuable as possible. If you are interested in funding parts of it, please get in contact.
