CANCELLED: HOT BODIES - STAND UP
29.10 – 30.10.2020
Please note: this show has been cancelled to help contain the spread of the coronavirus.
HOT BODIES - STAND UP is a performance at the crossroads of documentary and fiction, concert and stand-up. Armed with electronic instruments, a sampler and a vocoder, Gérald Kurdian sings and dances about the great sexual revolutions of the 20th and 21st centuries. The performance is partly based on interviews with people who practice their sexuality and/or gender as a way to resist, augment or emancipate the very idea of self. Join Gérald and dive into the collective experience of our impulses: he will broaden your view on sexuality!
• Gérald Kurdian lives and works in Paris and Brussels. He studied visual arts at the École nationale supérieure d’arts de Paris-Cergy. Kurdan is currently developing HOT BODIES OF THE FUTURE !, a performative and musical research cycle about alternative forms of sexuality and queer micropolitics.
