By and With HYENAZ

Art Director Yeorg Kronnagel

Avant-garde electronica duo HYENAZ close out the Pugs In Love Queer festival with an ecstatic performance.

Against societal trends to dismiss the body in favour of automation, AI, and digital existence, KNOWBODY investigates the presence and absence of the body and the knowledge contained therein. The investigation is done through the performance of the body and the presence of the body in performance. “A performance” asks that bodies are present; as performer, as audience, as active interlocutor. The assembling of bodies together for the purpose of performance – and the proximity of those bodies to experience or create together – allows us to rediscover the immanent territory of the flesh.

Berlin-based sound and movement artists Kathryn Fischer and Adrienne Teicher Berlin-based sound and movement artists are HYENAZ. The techno soundscapes, performative installations and a/v works they produce are based on the sonic shapeshifting of field recordings gathered everywhere from migrant camps to amphibian habitats to intentional communities. These works ask: What happens when the body becomes a foreign object, an unknown territory even to itself, a thing to be feared, managed? What possibilities for resistance can we find through proximity and touch?

Afterwards Party with DJ* Broccoli & Dozilla
