Image Snatchers

Technoburlesque is a silent comedy of the body that parodies the rigidity of social roles. It appropriates, copies and embellishes femininity, masculinity, family relationships, machismo and other depraved social roles that are wrongly considered normative. Through various maneuvers of appropriation of the folk, sacred, political and social imaginary, strung together in cabaret dramaturgy, it produces bone-breaking orgasms of the release of repressed norms. And after ... The explosion of emotions, thoughts and carnal sensations produces a proliferation of free-thinking entities whose world - after visiting technoburlesque - is never the same. When the Snatchers strip themselves completely, and shed layer after layer of social disguises, they do not get to the point, but find that the point is nothingness, and the staged travesties of the body are the opium that makes living bearable. Satisfied in the eclectic noise of the media image, they stretch popular images and bite them down to outrageous forms that evoke cringe or despair.

On April 15, a collective of cheeky personas returns to the underground of the Slovenian Youth Theater to build sandcastles from the sand that the authorities throw in our eyes, in which we are all safe, accepted and loved. They will be decorated with pearls thrown to pigs, whose glamorous shine will dazzle the pastors. From the manipulative obfuscation, they will tailor smokescreens through which they will wiggle their scantily clad long legs of luscious creations that defy Miss Polite's lessons. Young and old, those fed up with ballast and those insatiable gluttons are promised new images and their thieves. Dress up in the prettiest toilets and come snatch yourself.
