MIDSUMMER

 

In collaboration with Boys Club, COVEN BERLIN hosted an evening of performance, music, and art in order to celebrate its first birthday as well as the launching of the magazine issue “Witchcraft” on the summer soltice, the shortest night of the year.

 


 

Come! Gather! Celebrate the witch and the woman, the coven and the community, magic and art, and COVEN BERLIN’s first year of life!

Performances:

Behind the scenes: Destruction of Dude (feminist tentacle porn) (21:00h)
Can tentacle porn be feminist? Can a man be a feminist? Can a male body be used as a tool for feminism? Get behind the scenes of the feminist tentacle porn video ”Destruction of Dude” and find out! Video sneak peaks, DIY-inspiration, Q&A with actor and director and a real art-political manifesto (just like in the 90’s!). By Åslög

WITCHTITS go analog (22:30h)
Technological liveness, move over. Analog liveness, hello.
WITCHTITS deal with memory, risk and distance through this performance transmitted through the internet. WITCHTITS address their current multi-national situation with trust, interpretation and pokes in the butt.
WITCHTITS will summon the power of breath and the power of WITCHTITS, as always.

Do you have a certain chakra you need cracked? Are your humours bent out of shape? Have the muscles around your third eye been aching lately? Then step out of the 4th dimension and into the Black Magic Massage Parlour.

Let us shut down your frontal lobe and awaken your basest senses and desires. By Fran Breden. Original concept by Maggie Flynn
