Halloumi Extra! A carousel! A party! A bacchanal!
Curated by Yousef Iskandar, active in the art world for almost 17 years. A performer, later an art director and now a visual director.
The closing night of the Tanztage Berlin 2018 is a dance caberet full of irony - please don’t expect any cut and paste pastiche of exoticism here.
With your order of Halloumi extra comes your side (but not on the side) order of brutal performance extraodinaire by posthuman drag princess Dusty Whistles: serving the looks, the politique, and the passion.
Renu - London artist based in Berlin - will tease you with a glimpse into the world of her latest music release They Dance in the Night, an electronic odyssey with polyrhythms of percussion. Under Renu´s belt is that she has played for the likes of Grace Jones in the past.
Salma - co-producer and co-host of Halloumi Extra - is ‘Salima’ a Cairo Halloumi street vendor by day and feminist assasin of perpetrators of femicide in the world by night. What are your expectations? Well, watch!
Music will be provided by DJ HGR aka Hintergrundrauschen (Tresor) throughout the evening. Halloumi Extra! A night of film, dance, performance, and music. That’s your order of Halloumi Extra – and oh yes, it will be delicious!
