Rhubaba is pleased to present SKEEN NITE TOO (COME), an evening of performances and film by artist group and performance fiction Plastique Fantastique, featuring collaborations with Benedict Drew and 0(rphan)d(rift>).

About

For SKEEN NITE TOO (COME), Plastique Fantastique will screen Green Skeen, a film made with artist group 0(rphan)d(rift>), followed by The Seed Archive Breakout and the Groundogging of Elon Musk and Fire Rhythm with Benedict Drew, who will also perform a solo work, Dancing Queen.

Plastique Fantastique’s audio visual practice takes the form of immersive performances and sonic fictions that employ song, drone, masks, objects and film projection. The group also produce texts, installations, comics, shrines and assemblages to investigate aesthetics, popular culture and politics. Often employing sacred and ritualistic elements as well as medieval forms such as mumming plays, their work explores the accelerations of technology and capitalism and the place of embodiment and disembodied agents in contemporary culture. Referring to their work as a ‘mythopoetic fiction’, their collaborative performances have commonly explored themes of cyber technology, integrating AI, avatars, bitcoin, meme theory and feedback loops.

7.30pm: Green Skeen, film by 0(rphan)d(rift>) and Plastique Fantastique
8.15pm: Dancing Queen, performance by Benedict Drew
8.50pm: The Seed Archive Breakout and the Groundogging of Elon Musk, performance by Plastique Fantastique with Benedict Drew
