No one’s coming, everyone’s going! On July 24, 2020, an enormous festival will take place in Berlin where a stunning number of independent artists and culture makers working in all disciplines will take part – by not showing up. During the coronavirus pandemic, many freelance artists and culture makers have been unable to earn money and pay their living costs. This is why we’re turning to you: Show your solidarity! Buy a ticket for Berlin’s (non) event of the year and don’t show up!

          Tanz im August 2015 Eisa Jocson Host

          Dance

          2015 August 14 15 16 | 19.00
          Festsaal

          Suitable for Non-German Speakers

          Host is a one-woman-entertainment-service-machine. In the hostess clubs of Tokyo, Filipino female and transgender hostesses engage in ‘affective labour’ by performing a version of femininity that caters to Japanese salary men. These hostesses employ mimetic strategies and hybrid identities to survive and succeed. It is in this role that we first discover Jocson: she is our host, receiving and entertaining the audience as guests. The body then begins its transformation into a database of female body representations. And the performance physically explores mimesis and hybridity by colonizing Jocson’s body with a diversity of female dance languages of entertainment. Host invites us to experience and reflect on feminine image formation by displaying forms of entertainment strategies associated with femininity and by exhibiting labor and body politics.
