New Year's technoburlesque Image Snatchers
10 December 2022 at 8 p.m., Gromka Club
Technoburlesque is a mute comedy of the body that mocks rigidity of social roles. It uncritically appropriates, copies and glues together femininity, masculinity, family relationships, machismo and other degenerated social roles that are unrighteous considered to be normative. When Image Snatchers totally expose themselves - and remove their social dresses layer by layer - they do not find the essence, but realize that the essence is nothingness, and the performed travesties opium that makes living bearable. This amusing play in cross-dressing and their behavior are a result of great sexual and bodily liberation from social bands. Satisfied in eclectic noise of media images they stretch popular snap-shots and bite them to their unheard-of forms that provoke burst of laughter or despair. Image Snatchers don't seek for meaning but pleasure. As pleasure is the hedonistic polish with which they smeared everyday objects and made something exceptional out of them. Technoburlesque is an intersection of (program/cybernetic) code and subjectivity; a laying bare of the physical and emotional body indivisibly bound up with the information matrix of contemporaneity.
Holiday hysteria is just around the corner, and if December's (materialistic and expensive) slimming of wallets isn't enough, Ljubljana has once again been illuminated by heterosexualized holiday kitsch. Instead of kilometers of wrapping paper, give yourself a ticket for the annual December Technoburlesque, which will take place on December 10th in our home venue Gromka. All of you who have made it to the fat man's hard-working list, and especially all of you who are on the naughty list, are invited to show the middle finger to the capitalist rituals that are driving us crazy in these cold months. But don't forget about sensible footwear, with which you will spin to the beats of electronic dance music late into the glittering night.
The technoburlesque Image Snatchers will turn into a Pre-New Year's party, which will continue in Kamizdat Rentgen. Crucial Pink (DVNT PHNK), dvidevat and DADAEAST will be spinning. The ticket for New Year's technoburlesque Image Snatchers will also be valid for party and Kamizdat Rentgen #28.
