This event aims to open up a space for people to experiment with new or previously performed pieces, collaborations, provocations, experimental music, noise, spoken word, vocal contamination, performance and ‘silence’, performance installation, sculptural sound objects, ritual acts, sonic actions, and anything in-between
This will be one of the last events in this large warehouse space with sound system just off Old Kent Road.

Rick Jensen & Fontelo
Luke Jordan: Live performances are comprised of viscerally affective transmissions; the manifestation, binding and discharge of primal energies. The human and the non-human in anomalous entanglement and deformation between form and formlessness / Actions and environments of detritus, raw materials, repurposed objects, artefacts and technologies, cacophony, spoken words, and unintelligible vocalisations. Encounters with marginal entities, pre and post-human, unclean spirits / fleshy spectres / demons of the irrational, which act as social, cultural and psychophysical disruptions, agitations and provocations, collapsing the boundaries between inner and outer worlds / Experiments in the foregrounding of a primordial emergence of potentialities from ‘chaotic’ polymorphous matter; the formation, dissolution or destruction of human identity and subjectivity within a hallucinatory world.
Natalia Mali: Rooted in post-feminist discourse, Mali’s work addresses the construction of identity and explores the clash of values between the Islamic conservative traditionalism of her native land (Dagestan) and Western pluralism, advocating women’s rights, emancipation and empowerment. Having dubbed herself a postcolonial hybrid, Mali probes into cultural definitions of freedom and self-expression and examines contemporary collective identity.
Venus Raven: With an eye towards sodomising her fears, insecurities, and complexes she exploits herself until the marrow, through a sadomasochistic procedure that, by allowing and calling for openness and potential hurt, leads to the short-lived catharsis of an addict.
Rick Jensen & Fontelo: the ongoing collaboration between Rick Jensen on amplified saxophone and mysterious movement and sound performer Fontelo.

vomit / blood / photographs / projection
Luxul: performances utilise an electric viola / effects / voice
The viola is beaten, scratched, abused but seldom ever “played”. It serves frequently simply as a microphone to amplify a voice which is screamed, roared and growled. Each performance is improvised and created from scratch often with minimal forethought, relying primarily on the feel of the moment and atmosphere of the location.
