Festival für Freunde (Festival For Friends) has set itself the goal of creating a festival where everyone feels welcome. We invite artists from different genres to spend a weekend together in the countryside. Soya the Cow will perform in a shut-down cowshed, in remembrance of the history of the place, and celebrating a future without animal abuse.
Soya the Cow's first theater show "Dear Human Animals" is a solo piece that deals with the utopia of a new relationship between humans and other animals. With body rituals, storytelling, Soya's own songs and videos, Soya attempts the impossible: How can we endure something that is actually unbearable? How can we change something that we cannot change? And how can we become something that we are actually not? For example a cow. Or a drag queen. Or a pop star. Or an intact community for everyone.
On 15 May 2021 something unprecedented will take place! More than 20 German and international animal rights organisations, groups and initiatives are mobilising for the longest planned human chain for animal rights ever. The chain will form around the Binnenalster and will then turn into a protest march that leads to the beautiful open-air stage in Hamburg's Stadtpark, where Soya the Cow will perform and sing in front of thousands of activists.
A protest from Kreuzlingen to Konstanz across the Swiss-German border and a celebration for all animals. Soya the Cow will march with her human and non-human allies and sing her songs on the stage of Augustinerplatz in the heart of Konstanz.
