Technoburlesque is a mute comedy of the body that mocks rigidity of social roles. It uncritically appropriates, copies and glues together femininity, masculinity, family relationships, machismo and other degenerated social roles that are unrighteous considered to be normative. When Image Snatchers totally expose themselves - and remove their social dresses layer by layer - they do not find the essence, but realize that the essence is nothingness, and the performed travesties opium that makes living bearable. This amusing play in cross-dressing and their behavior are a result of great sexual and bodily liberation from social bands. Satisfied in eclectic noise of media images they stretch popular snap-shots and bite them to their unheard-of forms that provoke burst of laughter or despair. Image Snatchers don't seek for meaning but pleasure. As pleasure is the hedonistic polish with which they smeared everyday objects and made something exceptional out of them. Technoburlesque is an intersection of (program/cybernetic) code and subjectivity; a laying bare of the physical and emotional body indivisibly bound up with the information matrix of contemporaneity.

If red blood still runs through your veins, you don't know when you'll put on your dusty Titovka caps again, and you're not making a pilgrimage to Kumrovec, on May 24 come together to the loudest (Gromka) club on Metelkova, where a sports and cultural event and celebration will take place in advanced snatching spirit. Because on this holiday, the hearts of the comrades of the collective The Feminalz, from which the love of freedom sprouts, open wide, they have prepared a special technoburlesque for you. A travesty of Yugonostalgia to the accompaniment tunes of the pioneer torch will cause the rock to crack, the age to break and the earth to shake. Snatchers are men of their words, so they fulfill what they promise: Let the wicked be afraid of our songs!
