Soya the cow
Soya is Daniel Hellmann’s gender- and species-bending alter ego. The dancing, singing and talking drag cow unites queerfeminist ideas with animal rights activism, high fashion and poetry. Since her debut at the Animal Right March in front of the legendary Volksbühne Berlin, she appeared in discussion forums and protests. She gives workshops about consent, and performs on stages of theatres and nightclubs, as well as in public space.
Soya's one-cow-show "Dear Human Animals" was premiered on November 24, 2020 at Gessnerallee Zürich.
Soya's first music album "Purple Grass" will be released in 2021.
