TRAUMFRAU: The queer migrant takeover party

Besi Besemar November 24, 2017

Borders are closing and migrants are being vilified across the UK, both systemically and on the streets.

Traumfrau think it’s time to rebalance the power and give migrant friends a platform by throwing a party and celebrating everything migrants bring to the UK!

Join them at the Marlborough Theatre for a free party, a night of DJ sets, shows, and installations, by local migrant artists, as a celebration of multi-culturalism, national identity and above all, our migrant communities.

Behind the decks you will find:
Mima Chovancova – Slovak 80s synth music!
Pushy C – Dropping the best of Old Skool RnB, Garage with a twist of Bhangra, Bollywood, Reggaeton & Latino beats.
DJ Queen Deena – Iranian prince brings you a wild set from the middle east.

Appearing on stage
Filip Canha – migrant artist living in Brighton, Filip presents a durational piece “BEAT”
Subira Wahogo – African, Jew(ish), queer non-binary spoken word poet and activist, mostly writing about things that make them angry.
Miss Liliane – a drag queen channeling the spirit of Europa Martyred!

Art and Instllation by:
Violetta Marchenkova – from the Jewish Russian diaspora in Latvia, Violetta relocated to the UK in 2013. SPYING (2017), is an experimental documentary film in the tradition of travel essays. It offers a personal view of New York through the eyes and the camera of a Russian spy who struggles to speak in her native language.

Mima Chovancova – Postcards from Betweenity- is a series of very honest visual diary entries and coloured confessions of the anxieties, fears, and strong feelings of otherness and exploration of authenticity of a young Slovak artist living and practising in England

If you’re a migrant, go along and enjoy the marvels of dancing to songs you understand the lyrics to, share your experiences of micro aggression, and rant about the impossible bureaucracy of moving. If you are a Brit, go along and support your queer migrant friends.
