Thursday night Poetry & performance

Miksi Brouwer

Miksi Brouwer

Miksi is expert in kofferdichten en valiesrijm. Ze reist in 2018 door Europa met werk in verschillende talen. Soms is het vooral brabbeltaal, als de whisky te hard vloeit. Miksi loopt graag over verlaten straten en omineus overgroeide kerkhoven om inspiratie op te doen, maar dat betekent niet dat haar poëzie grimmig is. Daarnaast houdt ze van redundante adjectieven.

HexenSpeller

HexenSpeller

Noem meneer Goldman maar HexenSpeller. Overal tovert hij moeiteloos een chaotische storm van absurde woordkunst tevoorschijn. Maar het is meer dan alleen poëzie en spoken word, een betere omschrijving zou zijn: Dicht-Terreur en Performance Art. De illusies van HexenSpeller zijn duister en lichtvoetig, wild en komedisch.

Von Solo

Von Solo

‘Von Solo is de Jeff Koons van de vaderlandse poëzie!’ (P. Wolff). Rotterdammer Von Solo is actiepoëet, columnist en cineast. In zijn poëzie gaat het om beleven en beleefd worden. Hij is een neo-beatnik, als een stormram van vlees op weg naar de heilige jachtvelden van de poëzie. Daarbij laat hij een spoor van verontwaardiging, ontkenning en extase achter. In 2012, 2013 en 2015 nam hij deel aan de halve finales van het NK Poetry Slam. In zijn vrije tijd maakt hij kortfilms, zoals ‘Dood aan de Powezie’ (2013) en ‘The adventures of Gershard Coxxx, Rotterdam Porn Poet’ (2017).

Music: SURF & TURF

Surf & Turf: The most bizarre underground film festival of the Netherlands, the BUT Film Festival, asked us if we could program their Thursday evening. Of course we couldn’t say no!

The theme of the festival is unBUTtoned, so the question was whether we knew bands who radiate that explosion of SEX, ENERGY AND SWEAT...with a bit of dirt. We immediately said: OF COURSE! That’s our specialty! In fact, the line-up for this edition is so spot on, we cannot wait for the already legendary Thursday night: a night where you drink too much beer and wake up in the morning to a walrus with a little pink dress...

Charlie & the Lesbians

Les Garçons Sauvages

Les Garçons Sauvages

Les Garçons Sauvages

Jules Verne's The Mysterious Island and William Golding's Lord of the Flies turn into a gender-bending Freudian nightmare in this highly stylized film, in which a group of teenage rapists is sent to a mysterious island where nothing is what it seems. The style of the film is heavily inspired by the cinema of the 1910's, 20's and 30's, but with a darker, psychedelic, sexual twist.

Female Touch

This avant-garde sex film is a tribute to the films of Alberto Cavallone, directed by Morgana Mayer, whose Sexual Labyrinth was shown at BUT last year. Just like that film, Female Touch is a blasphemous, dreamlike movie that offers a queer and kinky vision of womanhood.
