Czech Honza

Jana Orlová decided to spend four hours in the skin of „Czech Honza“, a village bumpkin and a macho man. She drank cheap beer, ate low-quality sausages and rolls, burped, farted and made stupid jokes. There is almost no documentation of this performance, as the photographers present considered the artist to be a jerk who had joined the event by chance.

The performance was part of the collective performance project Liquid Queer Memoria. The drag king theme was chosen by Jana Orlová as a tribute to the artist Diane Torr, known primarily for her „gender-as-performance“ workshop „Man for a Day“.
