Performed by the international diva Krasen Krasstev In the post-internet era that had left us in controlled privacy setting, designed living and ideas of freedom mistaken for such prompted by social media, other polluted areas of consciousness have taken a turn. Created phantoms of desire, pornographic overload, dating apps and games, the element of sex becomes more and more present in the surrounding. Promoted as a tool of exchange and communication, but easily becoming a trap leading to the experiencing gaps and displacement attached to different excesses.Its obscure faze of delusion becomes conditioned and regarded as addictive.A certain behaviour that in itself is classified obsessive. Exorcism is the religious or spiritual practice of purportedly evicting demons or other entities from a person or an area they are believed to have possessed.Depending on the spiritual beliefs of the exorcist, this may be done by causing the entity to swear an oath, performing an elaborate ritual, or simply by commanding it to depart in the name of a higher power. The practice is ancient and part of the belief system of many cultures and religions. The sexorcist will appear as a mediator being, conspiring the demon to break the binding oath of gender and sexuality.In the attempt will be performed a streaptease,while internet generated texts will outspoken.The ritual`s aim is to liberate the spirit of the goddess of earthly pleasures, purify her into a new dimension, let her out of the cage of the virtual prison and re-connect back to the physical. Bring your smarties and log into the platform.
OCTOPUSSY lives in an ocean that is deep.
She has 8 arms and a beak. She tastes what she touches. Sharing interest is powerful.
Ayla Pierrot Arendt takes music or sounds, waste or experiences
from each place she visits to bring fragments of it to the next place where she
creates a situation for locals to share her music, to take away jam, juice or wine.
"ON TOUR w/Another is Sad" is about the transportation and production of a sad music that has hope.
Hope that sharing interests creates free space for exchange and interaction. By following the connections
she made through friends and friends of friends last year in order to promote the music of Other musicians that
touched her, she tries to build physical relations based on common interests. She believes that music and choreography
are media that move directly and immediately without exchanging words about common beliefs. Through music, we share sadness.
We taste empathy and care. Together we produce a common song within the time-space that we meet. We sort, re-use and touch the
experiences we make with each other.
Ayla Pierrot Arendt (1987 in Munich, DE) is a visual artist with a visual-sculptural-audial-philosophic practice that does not aim at a final image, like a virtuous representation of something but rather seeks for contact, an encounter or dialogue where the presented material is not only to be looked at but also an offer to engage. It is about the address of the spectator, so the audience no longer is there to just interpret what they see, but they are being involved through their imaginary, their own movement, their help. Arendt has a background in Visual Arts as well as in Choreography. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, where she focused mostly on painting and analogue animation. Since 2012 she creates video installations, for the gallery and performance context. She likes to define time-spaces that challenge the expectations of her audience. Since 2013 she has worked collaboratively, initiating discussion, including the rupture, tension and dissent that are produced in discussion. Choreography for her is about entering the very process of description itself, producing an interactive space-time that demands participation. Arendt looks for unforeseen relations between the performers, within the ideas, images and scenes. She is interested in the way it creates space IN BETWEEN. Instead of collaging a full image, individual fragments are put into tension that allow the sensation of something different. From 2012-16 she studied with philosopher Bojana Kunst at the MA program Choreography and Performance in Giessen.
“EXPIRED” by Kierean Cole as part of the days of the independent European documenty cinema Представяме втория норвежки филм в програмата на КинеДок - „Негодно за консумация“, на 18 май от 20:00
Синопсис: В заможна Норвегия, изхвърлянето на храна е огромен проблем без видимо решение. Група от четирима младежи планират 5-седмичен велосипеден тур от север на юг - около 3000 километра с единствено стриктно правило: Всяко хранене трябва да произлиза от хранителни отпадъци. Въпреки, че задачата изглежда трудна, по пътя им помагат много хора, на които им е писнало да виждат годна храна по кофите за боклук. Да опиташ „негодното за консумация“ никога не е било по-вкусно.
