Image Snatchers

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.

Your's The Feminalz, with a taste for the tacky, are already cooking up a new technoburlesque for you. The tasteless jokes and the spicy performances are already on fire. They're made up of fleshly pleasures, as they spin on stage in a mortal flip. They seem whimsy as they sprout from the underworld, just enough to tickle you, then melt back into the trail, and tears of both happiness and despair. Why there is no woe too steep for snatching mischief. When the Gromka tolmun is filled again on 28 September, the honour will be ours and yours to laugh at. Do not miss, and do not be late, for this is a virtue that only the experienced master.
