Performance – Quimera Rosa (ES): sEXUS 3

Cyborg post-porn, BDSM body noise and gender hacking performance.
With a nod to The Piano Teacher by Elfriede Jelinek, this performance revises the universe of Blade Runner in a post-porn version: here, the replicants have left humanity for good. Mixing scenes of cyberpunk surrealism with non-conventional sexual practices, the sEXUS 3 transforms their bodies into sexo-sounding instruments through electronic prosthesis connecting the flesh with BDSM techniques. The sound of this piece is generated live by the contact of the bodies. Quimera Rosa condensates in this performance its seven years of electrochemical experiments.

Quimera Rosa (Pink Chimera) is a lab that researches and experiments on body, technology and identities. From a transfeminist and post-identity perspective, they make bodies a platform for public intervention, breaking up limits between public and private. Most of their work is developed in a collaborative way, and always under DIY technologies and free culture paradigm.
Quimera Rosa is formed by Cecilia Puglia and Rubi Bote. From its inception in Barcelona in 2008, it has nomadically conquered the streets, universities, cultural centres, museums, squats and festivals around Europe and America.

Voluntary contributions are more than welcome – and bloody well needed!
