RTB Fest: Live with Aérea Negrot + Renu

October 13 @ 8:00 PM - 11:30 PM

12 EUR at Entrance (contact us for special circumstances)

Audiences can expect a lush LIVE concert on the beautiful Saal theatre at Werkstatt Der Kulturen:

Aérea Negrot is a multi-purpose, long-lasting singer-producer-DJ-composer-performer in a bottle. Combining technoid grooves, operatic vocals and abstracted pop & as a studio producer, vocalist, trained ballet dancer and DJ, she owns not just the stage but also the means of production. Aérea Negrot allows her various disciplines to overlap into something delightfully demented, bursting with personality, nimbly leaning toward the future while still keeping one pinky-toe in the traditions of classicism.

AND

RENU, Bengali-British queer femme musician, Berlin and London based artist, composer, producer, tabla-player, multi-percussionist. Originally she played for multiple bands & genres – Grace Jones, State of Bengal, Fun_da_mental, Kevin Davy Jazz D’semble, MIKA, Alabama 3, Tunde Jegede – she started to produce her own music in the year of 2010.

RENU’s electronic music production largely references 80s and 90s Electronic dance music and combines the height of dark hooky anthems with an underlying post-colonial narrative. What would you do if you discovered a party where Gary Numan is married to The Orb who is slow dancing with Massive Attack, while Oum Kalthoum French kisses Prince and finally, Daphne Oram is mixing the drinks?

THEY DANCE IN THE DARK is dedicated to all the witches, weirdos, nerds, femmes and queers of this cosmos.

The visuals for THEY DANCE IN THE DARK were created by London based filmmaker and visual artist Yue Wang in co-direction with Salma Arzouni and RENU. The visuals reflect the albums queer, weird and femme spirit in a setting of a mystical electronic odyssey.

DJ set: TBA
