Two years ago, Neal Leemput researched the queer body image in the theater. As a follow-up to this he's writing a book on this theme, with the working title 'In our village it is always quiet'. In this publication, the questions and findings of the artistic research will be linked to the current debate on gender and sexual diversity and Neal's personal story. He will also question the relationship between queer theater, or 'queer art' in general, and the perception of non-normative body images in society today. In this way he wants to write an artistic-cultural time document, consisting of letters, notes, reflections, opinion texts and columns. Previous research results are looked into, broadened and broadened from a social, artistic and cultural point of view.
