Sophia Rodríguez: Without Filter – public presentation

April 18, 2019 8:00 pm

Utterly wild, without filters, without inhibition, without fear. Get ready for a night of outstanding instant production in which local trained performers will show under leadership of Sophia Rodríguez that what really counts is a good idea and courage, even if you hardly have any budget. The instants are our response to the local (hyper)production climate and an attempt to pass the methodology of unit multiplication to appease the bureaucratic machine onto new generations. Besides that, we are also fostering their outlandish inclinations and hidden fantasies to make sure to provide sufficient quantity of twisted images and we are also planning a few surprise acts with special guests…

Emanat Institute is systematically organising different movement, performative and vocal workshops for several years. We put special attention to the development of genres of new burlesque and cabaret through workshops and also our own stage production – Image Snatchers technoburlesque. Most local representatives of these genres that are active in the independent scene already participated in our workshops. On our own or in collaboration with the City of Women association we hosted selected most interesting representatives of performance, new burlesque and cabaret, among others, British performer Marisa Carnesky (2011), Berlin performer Antonia Baehr (2011), international collective La Pocha Nostra (2011, 2013), and British and Australian creators Ursula Martinez (2014) and Moira Finucane (2015).
