REAKTIONEN:

“war mir ein königliches Vergnügen bei der Filmpremiere dabei sein zu dürfen.” Paul Poet

“Einer der besten Filmdokumente des Jahres! Mit vielen genialen Szenen! Viel Dramatik, vor allem am Anfang. Viel Genuss, vor allem am Schluss! Zwei Oscars gibts für den “optischen Eindruck” und die “künstlerische Leitung”. Vielleicht noch ein letzter Feinschliff, und der Film könnte ein Klassiker werden. Dem Premierenpublikum hat es jedenfalls sehr gefallen! Great FUN und auch mit Haltung und Tiefgang! Wir hatten unser eigenes Identities!

One of the best documentary films of the year! With many brilliant scenes! High drama, especially in the beginning. So much pleasure, especially at the end! Two Oscars there for the “optical impression” and the “artistic director”. Perhaps one last finishing touch, and the film could be a classic. The premiere audience liked it in any case very much! Great fun and also with attitude! We had our own identities!” MH

Symbio dt

Die Feen von Hadres (oder Symbiofaerietaxiplasm) ist ein experimenteller Dokumentarfilm über die Radical Faerie Bewegung in Österreich. Ursprünglich eine queere Subkultur aus dem San Francisco der 1970 er Jahre sind die Faeries in Österreich eine neue Gemeinschaft. Das Filmteam hat von 2012 bis 2014 mit ihnen zusammen gearbeitet und dabei ist ein 110 minütiger Film entstanden

Worum geht es in diesem Projekt?

Der Film beschäftigt sich mit queeren Ausdrucksformen im Kino und versteht sich nicht als klassische Dokumentation. Obwohl im Rahmen der Dreharbeiten viele Interviews und Bühnenaufzeichnungen entstanden sind, die auch schon Grundlage von Installationen und Ausstellungen waren, geht der Film anders vor. In enger Zusammenarbeit mit den Faeries hat das Team 7 Kapiteln erarbeitet, die in filmischer Form den Ausdrucksweisen der einzelnen Faeries entsprechen. Der Film stellt sich daher auch weniger als Erzählung dar sondern verzichtet wie die Faeries selbst auf die Gewissheiten, die sich aus etablierten Formensprachen ergeben. Er versteht sich selbst als offene Form, die zur aktiven Teilnahme der Zusehenden auffordert. So wie es in Faerie Gemeinschaften nur Räume der Interaktion und die damit verbundene Notwendigkeit permanenter Aufmerksamkeit und wenige feste Strukturen gibt, handelt es sich auch bei dem Film um das Ergebnis einer kollektiven Interaktion.

Wer die Zielgruppe?

Das Projekt richtet sich an alle die sich für experimentelle Kinoformen, gegenkulturelle Bewegungen oder queere Gemeinschaften interessieren. Und natürlich an alle Faeries und ihre Freund*innen weltweit.

Der Film soll auf queeren Filmfestivals weltweit gezeigt werden. Es müssen noch Musiklizenzen, das ausstehende Audio-Mastering und damit der letzte Schliff in der Postproduktion finanziert werden. Dieser österreichische Film wurde leider nicht vom österreichischen Queerfilm Festival “Identities” ins Programm genommen, daher muss diese Premiere selbst finanziert werden.

Wer steht hinter dem Projekt?

Georg Vogt ist Kultur- und Medienwissenschafter und als Lektor an der Universität Wien tätig. Außerdem ist er als Autor, Herausgeber, Kurator und Filmemacher.

Bastian Petz ist selber Faerie, betreibt kunstbasierte Forschung in Wien und beschäftigt sich seit einigen Jahren mit der internationalen Radical Faerie Bewegung.

Christian Karst ist Kameramann, Cutter und bildender Künstler. Er ist in der Kunst- und Designvermittlung tätig und lehrt in Wien.

“HATRED KILLS FAIRIS” – Report on the participation of Radical Faeries at the Rainbow Parade Vienna 2014!

The parade was just incredible splendidly for us and left a quiet luster to our golden faces. Never ever have so many people taken photos from us. The joy beamed from every face who discovered us and applauded. “We radiated grace and glorious movement of our bodies like no other group in the parade,” told us a young woman who followed us for some time. The joy of our presence was felt everywhere! The Faeries represent the diversity of our community: The Rurtaler were alternately carrying the parade shield. They are magnificent images of men with long hair and beautiful hairy bodies, a real eye catcher and figurehead for our group. They smiled and radiated out in front and were reliable vanguard against the hard core of the Austrian Faeries: the triumvirate of Black Panther; today as a perfect drag queen who called herself on parade “Bad Davis” so mean and striking was der eyeliner, but her smile was just amazing and turned us on all the way up the Ring Street in the opposite direction. Then, Red Rose, once again “Reddily” our “cock of the walk” as aptly the newspaper “Österreich” subtitled, in a dress that envied all viewers, so totally authentic was the rose, as if she was already born in this dress. Her cordial attitude was catching to all around. People scrambled to get a picture of us. And as a third musketeer: Mata Hari, this time “Golden I” – in the same outfit as on the Life Ball. The golden rays shooting out of her head assembly, met in all eyes round. Applause everywhere. Finally, Golden I was only able to a serene goodness, to incarnate the eternal glory of the sun that gives us her eternal life energy. Bravely she stalked elegantly in the highest heels off the ring, no matter how her toes would look like. We did it for the enthusiastic people to whom tolerance and respect for others is a concern. Where it is more important to spread positive energy instead of negative and still be themselves! We got the number right before the Noes, which gave us extra attention, as many believed, this huge pink rainbow of balloons behind us was one of us. But still we heard that the parade spectators very well could identify us as the Radical Faeries and they also applauded us sporadically for that. We have not arrived in the mainstream, but in the hearts of men, we have a clearly noticed and many have recognized us from the exhibition “Radical Faeries at the Viennese City Hall!” Many Faeries were not marching right behind our sign, but scattered in the parade, because we are everywhere. Some did not go along, because they do not bear the crowds and the noise. Also, that’s OK. We were pleased that Doro and El have painted their body and have always looked by and visited us. We appreciated many Faerie friends who suddenly appeared and were greeting us. We also gave interviews to ORF and W24 that we also saw the same evening on television.
And there was one thing that has surprised all of us: The Radical Faeries won the 2nd place in the evaluation of the contributions as marching troupe by a jury with regard to the idea, execution and message! behind HAPPY. This has really pleased! Because that showed us that the message has arrived! Great appreciation! WELL DONE!
parade5-300x192In contrast to Vienna Pride the Rainbow Parade is still not a purely commercial event where still contents, spirit, tolerance and messages are really transported and a breach of rules is not taken too seriously. This had to suffer our beloved Hermes, who as a living altar wanted to sit on a wheelchair somewhere in a small tent, and he was miserably disposed of by the organizers of the Vienna Pride because he dared for 5 minutes his body to free himself completely, together with a piece of 61 years old naked skin, which has served once as a genital – before this body would have been decorated. In contrast, this event was promoted towards the Ring Street with huge posters of a new political party, where the only key element was a male ass presented with the note: “Free yourself”. That is the hypocrisy and apparent “tolerance” in this country. Nudity is tolerated in the 21st century only where it is meant to entice people on glossy. However, if an older person once wants to do free himself for 10 minutes, someone who has marked 25 years the spiritual gay life of the city as a positive open and radical against babbittry like no other and for so many – as a bearer of hope against the general personal oppression, It is immediately switched off every spirit and compassion of those who are afraid of sponsors or the image of the event and the emergency or police is called.
Nudity is still the biggest taboo of humanity, to show people the way you really is. We still pursue those who want to break this taboo. We do not want to hear their message. We despise them, because they represent something that we ourselves do not want to allow us to be as we really are! We cannot permanently suppress our true inner nature – without losing our love.
What probably most impressed me during the parade was a young one from the Philippines, who carried a sign that read: “HATRED KILLS FAIRIS”. There is nothing to add! (Mata Hari)

The KISSING AWAKE the Sanctuary Report (by Mata Hari)

The Kissing AWAKE of our new Faerie Home in Austria started already one day before the event when Red Rose and I picked up Mother Goose and Bindu happily from the stations in Vienna and when I suddenly ran into Lone Wolf not far from my home at night, although I did not know that Lone Wolf was already in town. This is MAGIC! The faeries MEET wherever they are – at the right moment, the right place, the right persons!

On 15th August about six faeries landed safely at the new sanctuary by train from Vienna – being picked up by a new faerie Udo, who came with Fauny arriving the day before from Amsterdam. In the afternoon I had a long, serious and intensive talk with Fauny about his views and the views of “Folleterre” about the new sanctuary / faerie homes in Austria and about Folleterre in general. Are we all still very close to the roots of the faerie-movement in Europe? Should we open up to new ideas? Is the whole thing getting too commercial? Many questions in our heads! Fauny was the faerie who also led the inauguration in Folleterre 8 years ago, so he knew definitely how it goes! We talked about the program of the ceremony and we had a delicious meal cooked by a lot of faeries. But before the ritual started around the fire, there came a big surprise. The two new faeries from Austria Tom and Michael arrived and some faeries in beautiful masks. It turned out that one of them was Bambi from Berlin and two American Faeries from California who already knew Harry Hay personally and one of them told us that Hay was the reason to encourage him to his Coming Out as a Gay person. And as mysteriously as they appeared, so quickly they disappeared at the end of the day – but before we started the unique Kissing AWAKE Ritual with a little heart circle around the fire. I had the idea to name it “Kissing Awake”, when I woke up one morning and was considering what can we do with a sleeping beauty? Maybe Inauguration sounds too sacred, but kissing sounds human and sexy at the same time. Kissing is good for human souls, for trees and animals. And kissing was always a taboo for me when I was young. So I also wanted to break a taboo in me and among the faeries. It is not necessary everything always only ever be named “holy” in a sanctuary. It should also be a blessed, beloved and loving place. And you can show best love externally if you kiss somebody! Don’t you? I really would strongly hope that everybody involved deeply incorporates this spirit! It is a real chance to get a new life!

When it was dark the procession started and we walked one after another to the 4 corners of the sanctuary with burning candles in our hands. A candlelight procession to get to know all the secrets of the land. But before we asked for protection for the land and that it would allow us to be safe and gentle and spiritual to it and we promised to be good to the land and take care for it! Then in every corner we asked for the spirits of the 4 hemispheres. In the second corner we asked for the spirits of the animals for blessing which was my task to do so, because I specially love the animals in this sanctuary! In the third corner we were finding our way at the land through the darkness by waiting at our own imaginary altar and then going back creating a spiral with our candles as a symbol for creation – the founding of a new sanctuary.

At the forth corner finally we did the real kissing awake ritual where we gathered around a beautifully red and orange decorated bench in the wood and we all started to kiss another faeries one after another at the bench. The kissing ceremony was just amazing and very touching for us all. We all were very grateful to have this wonderful moment in our lives. Yes and from now on also the Sanctuary was kisses and sacred ….

And then the performances started on our stone stage. Red Rose and I performed the modern but wild interpretation of Stravinsky’s “Le Sacre de Printemps” which I thought was perfectly representing the idea of this special event. This 20 minutes fight between the tribes of the world which was led with soil, plants and honey, the sacrifice of the virgin ended up with the crowning of the fire in nakedness. Till midnight our two Faeries from California gave us a wonderful time playing beautiful songs at the guitar and we all hoped that this romantic and warm summer night would never end.

In the morning we had a great Shaking workshop with Black Panther. We started building a shrine for the sanctuary and we had our first real “kissed awake” heart circle in beautiful sun under shady woods. On the occasion of the Kissing ceremony the circle started by presenting a nice little gift from Folleterre to the Austrian Faeries. The gift touched us a lot and with tears in our eyes we all spoke from the heart.

I must admit that I did not want to leave this Sanctuary at this moment. Everything was so calm and gentle. I could not imagine that tomorrow there should start the first full 10 days Gathering in Austria in the Alps near Salzburg – which mainly was organized by me. But I had to face the reality – the faerie reality! And we started the faerie track west to the gathering – not knowing what was expecting me – but with my only real intention – to have an open heart for all and to feel and bring and spread GOOD ENERGY! – To LET IT FLOW in Austria!

…And as all the reactions worldwide show us – yes! – Everybody appreciated that!

First REACTIONS to this UNIQUE Event 2013:

*

“The Equinox Party in a very vintage Viennese Variety Theater was a veritable smorgisbord of astounding theatrical and Musical Talent. It was strange standing in a chant circle in front of non-faeries or Friends-of-faeries. The Lady caught up with Faeries not seen since the Gathering; but everyone in a flurry of rehearsing and costume changes. The Lady can say that ‘the very Special Guest from London if anything was ‘Special Needs’…She’s still drying out on the Sofa!

Mata Hari was an inexhaustible wealth of Talent; the Show went on for six hours…

Faerie Magic and Sacred Play was always present. A wonderful time!” The Lady xxx

IN AUSTRIA THIS SUMMER there were both temporary and a new permanent manifestation of faerie love. Europe is about to be home to a second faerie sanctuary. 8 years after the inauguration of Folleterre in the Vosges mountains of north eastern France, came the Kissing Awake of Wienviertel Sanctuary a new faerie home in Austria, P1170187generously opened up to us all by the landowner, El.

Ceremonials to kiss awake the new land happened 15-16 August and were followed by a faerie trek west across the country to the Sound of Music territory of Salzburg where around  60 faeries met for the first full 10 day Austrian Gathering.
