Image Snatchers

Technoburlesque is a silent comedy of the body that parodies the rigidity of social roles. It appropriates, copies and embellishes femininity, masculinity, family relationships, machismo and other depraved social roles that are wrongly considered normative. Through various maneuvers of appropriation of the folk, sacred, political and social imaginary, strung together in cabaret dramaturgy, it produces bone-breaking orgasms of the release of repressed norms. And after ... The explosion of emotions, thoughts and carnal sensations produces a proliferation of free-thinking entities whose world - after visiting technoburlesque - is never the same. When the Snatchers 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. 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.

The fact is that the world is going to hell and the fight against discouragement and moralism is turning into a butcher's slaughter day by day. Some time ago, Image Snatchers dug into the fronts of the so-called good taste and said to the enemies grom in peklo, prazne vaše proti nam so steke. Their battle plan is to deconstruct social constructs, mock the untouchable and laugh at the unfunny. Their next battle will take place on November 12 in the Slovenian Youth Theatre, where reinforcements will finally join the titular long-fingered snatchers. Join them in the trenches and let the kitschy fun and glitz dazzle your senses with stolen and recycled imagery. The apocalypse will be in the colors of kitsch, gold=fight, fade out until hore legalis.
