HUMAN RIGHTS FRIDAY
13:30 - 16:00
Friday afternoon De Studio will be the place to be for the Antwerp Pride Human Rights Friday.
LYRA PRAMUK + HABIBITCH + LEBRUCE
20:00 - 22:00
Berlin based artist Lyra Pramuk (GER) fuses classical vocalism, pop sensibilities, performance practices and contemporary club culture in what can best be described as futurist folk music.
Seizing on recorded work as well as performance to be a process of sampling and synthesis, genres are cross-pollinated and extended, returning all the while back to her formative impulse that storytelling is song, and song is a means of short-circuiting the structures we are sold as a real difference in this world.
At the crossroads of multiple disciplines and identities, Habibitch (FR) is building an art practice as ‘woke’ as she is. Habibitch uses spaces from the Ballroom Scene to feminist and institutional stages to express her North-African queer decolonial self. Her performances are always intersectional. Decolonize the Dance Floor is a dance she’s been touring internationally with for two years.
Being an urban pop artist with an academic dance background makes Lebruce (NL) quite a unique artist. His music is art and his songs are storytelling. He just got his first EP Flair Talk out.
