Thursday⋅ May 26th ⋅ 20:00 ⋅ Cukrarna Bar, Ljubljana
The Feminalz present the third part of the Technoburlesque: the subversive electrocabaret with elements of ex-Yugoslav pop culture and playful queer feminist humor. The doors to the disco club, to the new eighties and the old noughties, to modern trap and contemporary schlagers are wide open again. The songs are based on individual acts from the performance Image Snatchers, produced by Institute Emanat, which has been running since April 2013 and has been performed over 60 times.

Luka Prinčič + The Feminalz
Luka Prinčič has been there for all things musical in Image Snatchers since the beginning. He develops the soundtrack for individual acts in cooperation with the rest of The Feminalz, a collective of transgender entities that express their choreographical and performative acts in the technoburlesque show. Image Snatchers is designed as a corporeal study of (pop)art forms that walks the thin line between entertainment and critique, satire and tragedy, music and dance, feminism and strip-pleasure, ending the fourth year of unstoppable transformation. The music is sometimes used as a readymade and an important reference to a specific past era, scene or its vibe. Lipsyncing makes an appearance too, and so do electronic bootleg edits or remix tracks. Popular songs are sung live, sometimes with lyrics changed to various degrees, whereas at other times completely original music is made by the collective. While the show is gathering more and more reputation on local stages in clubs and halls (Club Gromka, Old Power Station – Stara Elektrarna, Cankarjev dom, Maribor Theatre Festival), the collective’s music derivatives have delivered a considerable number of music hits. In 2014 the first five songs were released as Technoburlesque: Image Snatchers EP with the hit song Cica-San (Baš me briga). Four years later the second part followed, Technoburlesque: Image Snatchers 2, with the song Vrtnice (Roses), a poetic but outspoken take on dismissive attitudes towards artists in contemporary politics and public life in general.

About Kamizdat Rentgen
Kamizdat Rentgen is a glance under the surface of the skin, a look into the fleshy entwinement of bones, muscles and nerves that shape the heterogeneity of the sound bodies. It is a series of music events organized by Kamizdat to increase the visibility of adventurous music makers who dare to venture into the territories where no one had been before. The events are often closely connected with the label’s new releases.
Produced by Emanat in collaboration with Cukrarna Bar and with the support by the City of Ljubljana.
