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.

Four nights after the Advent wreaths light only the fourth candle, The Feminalz will light the 10th. The list of images they have already snatched is as long as the beards of the chubby-cheeks who pretend to be the mascot of the times. Like caticatures of thug capitalists, they boast full malchas to make an intolerable world a little more bearable. Santa Nicholas Clauses or Snatchers? On 28 December at the Maldinsko Theatre, you will be visited by ghosts from Christmas past, present and future. Let your mouths not only be full of empty vows, but let them also be full of laughter, and let the joy in your hearts be as fresh as a freshly peeled tangerine.
