Mixing classical music in DJ sets and artistic performances for years, Jérôme Porsperger is a countertenor opera singer and a classical music fine
connoisseur with an extensive collection of classical records. He will accompany the opening drink with a pop-lyrical recital made of songs and glitter.
More than a performance to open the festival, GOUPILS is an installation of three immersive experiences in a new world. Volumetric video is an exciting medium which allows the viewer to move around 3-D images using virtual reality headset.
Each experience lasts about ten minutes. The three tableaux – “Goupil”, “Rana”, and “Socrates and Alcibiades” – are accompanied by a voice-over and specific ambient sounds, proposing a reflectionon the mechanisms of inclusion/exclusion and minority powers.
OPENING screening 1
An unique portrait of one of queer activism most prominent figures taking stock of a contrasting life, made up of deaths and rebirths, to the rhythm of techno music, his other great passion.
A radical trans-poetic massage for the ears and the heart. A text with words as strong as a well-delivered uppercut. It scratches, it tears you apart, and then it’s soft… like a punch in the face! It takes you down slowly, like spit dripping in between breasts. It’s raw flesh, my bones creaking between your teeth. It’s 20 minutes of dark and funny poetry, like a hymn to the urgency of a certain rage.
