Gender Bender Festival, Bologne
Oct

Gender Bender Festival, Bologne

We are buzzing to have our Bologne debut with this wonderful festival:

Incontro e performance con la compagnia.

Dialogano con la compagnia Salvatore Pinto (aka Miss Pingy) e Rossella Piergallini.

Ospiti di questo incontro, il collettivo che sta rivoluzionando la scena Drag londinese: The Drag Syndrome sono un gruppo di drag queen e drag king con sindrome di down, definiti dalla stampa “i nuovi eroi della cultura queer”. Se l’arte del Drag è sinonimo di trasformazione e libertà di espressione, le performance delle Drag Syndrome fanno un passo più avanti. Un’esperienza radicalmente nuova che non lascia indifferente nessuno spettatore.

Miss Pingy compare la notte dell’8 dicembre 2007, già formata. Il suo drag schizofrenico, tra eleganza egrottesco, ironia e riflessione, le permette di calcare importanti palchi italiani e – nel 2016 – le fa conquistare il titolo di Miss Drag Queen Italia. Abita il corpo (e la mente) di un teatrante da molti anni, ora specializzando come Dramaturg presso ERT alla Scuola Iolanda Gazzerro di Modena.

Rossella Piergallini vive e lavora a Bologna come docente dell’Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna. Artista sperimentale eclettica e versatile, inizia il suo percorso artistico progettando e realizzando performance ed installazioni, nell’uso di una pittura scultorea dove il segno e il rito sono i luoghi dell’azione e l’unico mezzo di conoscenza sono i sensi ed il corpo. La sua indagine è rivolta al corpo-abitato dove il vissuto personale e la memoria sono elementi essenziali. Le sue opere sono presenti in collezioni private e collezioni permanenti di Fondazioni e Musei italiani.

Allons enfants de la Patrie, le jour de gloire est arrivé!

“Vorrei cambiare il mio vestito che vecchio ormai
non mi sta bene piu’” sono le parole che descrivono al meglio la nascita di una serata di cui probabilmente non sentivate il bisogno.
Un viaggio eclettico che nel corso della notte vi farà sentire Ariana Grande su un letto a 4 zampe e Loretta Goggi sul palco di San Remo 81’.
🌟
Lo show è a cura di Drag Syndrome: Horra Shebang, Gaia Callas e Justin Bond, un collettivo di artisti con la sindrome di Down, si esibiranno all'inizio della serata in drag queen e drag king per mostrarci chi sono "the new queer cultural heroes".

Friday Lates at Science Gallery London

Friday Lates at Science Gallery London

Join us for an evening of talks, workshops and performances that will challenge what ‘normal’ bodies look like and explore personal stories of living with a spare part or altered organ.

Is access to new technologies, whether state-of-the-art 3D printed limbs or the latest health app, giving us greater control over our bodies and identities? How can our society and infrastructure be better set up to meet the needs of all bodies? And is the drive to improve and optimize our bodies always healthy?

Highlights include a performance by opera singer Victoria Oruwari, who uses her voice as a prosthesis to move through spaces, a talk by Sophie de Oliveira Barata, founder of the Alternative Limb Project and a collage making workshop with malady mag.

PROGRAMME OUTLINE
BODY-BUILDING
A collage making workshop with malady mag, where no bodies created are too far from the norm.

The Yonis
Don’t miss movement girl band The Yonis who will be performing a joyful ‘song’ celebrating difference and individual expression several times through the evening. Connect with your own body and join their open band practice.

Drag Syndrome
The world's first Drag collective of queens and kings with Down’s syndrome explore the wonder of an extra chromosome in a boundary-pushing performance.

ANTIPHON
Opera singer Victoria Oruwari performs a sound work by artist Tabatha Andrews and composer Charlotte Harding exploring the process of listening, altered senses and otoacoustic emissions - tiny sounds our ears make in response to external noise. Following her performance, Victoria Oruwari will share how she experiences the world through sound and discuss her collaboration with artist Tabatha Andrews, whose work features in the SPARE PARTS exhibition.

SHAREABLE BIOME PERFORMANCE LECTURE
Is radical self-care for the microbiome possible? Artists Caitlin & Misha take a humorous look at fecal microbiota transplants and lead a microbiome meditation.

SUPERTURD CARD GAME
Play a round of Superturd with King’s College London PhD students Emily and Geraldine in The Gut and share your microbiome.

QUANTIFIED LIFE
Do our bodies exist as systems that should be optimized and improved? Film screening and Q&A with King’s College London researcher Dr Btihaj Ajana and Thomas Christiansen, who has used self-tracking devices to manage his allergies and eczema.

And even more activities to come!

Our Café will be open for service during the evening - grab a drink from our bar from until 21:30 and enjoy food from the open kitchen until 21:00.

Friday Lates at Science Gallery London are a chance to explore the gallery after hours, enjoy a drink and bite to eat, and discover talks, workshops, performances and music brought to you by inspiring artists and researchers.

Drag Syndrome in Stockholm

Hey Stockholm, we’re coming to the mighty Club Backdoor.

Drag Syndrome är en underground Dragshowgrupp där alla drag queens- och kings har Down's Syndrome. Gruppen började med att göra shower på små klubbar och barer i London, men har efter ett nyhetsinslag på Australiensk teve fått erbjudande om att uppträda världen över och gjort stora modevisningar och modereportage ibland annat tidningen ID. Senaste showen i Norge fick fem stjärnor av fem möjliga! På sin turné under 2019 gör det ett Sverigeexklusivt uppträdande den 25 januari på Backdoor där samtliga gruppmedlemmar i Down Syndrome kommer att bjuda på en enastående färgsprakande show!

Under övriga kvällen spelas det gamla- och nya superhits från världens alla topplistor! Helt enkelt musik man vill dansa sig svettig till hela natten lång! I "The Hole" kommer det att spelas Mello/Eurovision och gamla schlagerdängor ända fram till klockan 05.00!
