SMS means......

SMS means… is art that excites and dazzles. It is a series of multidisciplinary events that invite you to explore different art forms and marginalised perspectives. At the Château Rouge art space, artists, performers and musicians from diverse backgrounds come together to create works that respond to and transform each other. In this way, we channel synergies and cross-genre projects. SMS creates space for diversity, dialogue and collaboration that fosters a dynamic of inclusion.


Misonica (live)

Misonica as a Dj is a strong selector across times and spaces, fusing hidden gems from all over the world and obscure vocal tracks into a coherent, punchy mix between Industrial and EBM, Tribal and Cosmic or experimental sounds.
In her recently presented live sets, she works with field recordings, ambient noises and her voice. They engage with a larger narrative, and guide us into imaginary realms, opening auratic spaces that we can walk in.

Elisabeth Bakambamba Tambwe (video performance)

Video installation by Elisabeth Bakambamba tambwe with Music composed by Ursula Winterauer and shoot by Jo Molitoris.

As an artist, choreographer and stage director, she works with a variety of forms of writing: performance, choreography, film, interactive and generative, as well as different dramaturgies and spaces such as installations and stages. She is interested in the emergence of new forms of otherness, and the singular relationships and languages they give rise to. What do they reveal about our humanity, and how do they challenge the notion of anthropocentrism? Her projects are transdisciplinary and collective, and seek to invent shared research spaces between performance art and the social sciences.
