Technoburlesque is a silent comedy of the body that parodies the rigidity of social roles. It uncritically appropriates, copies and embellishes femininity, masculinity, family relationships, machismo and other depraved social roles that are falsely considered normative. When the Thieves strip themselves completely, and shed layer after layer of social disguises, they do not get to the point, but find that the point is nothingness, and the staged travesties of the body are the opium that makes living bearable. This amusing game of disguise and their behavior is the result of a great historical liberation of sexuality and the bodies of individuals from social bonds. Satisfied in the eclectic noise of the media image, they stretch popular images and bite them down to outrageous forms that evoke cringe or despair. Image thieves aren't looking for meaning, they're looking for pleasure. Because pleasure is a hedonistic gloss with which they coated everyday objects and turned them into something extraordinary. With physical and emotional bodies, technoburlesque is changing the programming code in a society that finally allows the open encryption of its own limited nonsense.

Following the example of the extreme female candidate in the upcoming elections, the Snatchers also decided to appropriate the psychoanalytic discourse when attracting the audience. The non-normative curiosities of the father's collective do not promise tranquility, because they cannot function normally, even if they wanted to, and therefore promise their audience liberation from the tyranny of the left brain hemisphere and a solution from the loop of the psychoanalytic family triangle. By activating the amygdala, the Snatchers may instill fear in you, perhaps angry combativeness, or activation of the dopamine mesocortilimbic system. The only way to make sure how your seductive bodies will react to the experience is to attend the Technoburlesque on October 20 at Club Gromka.
