Holy Mountain Party – Sat 31 March – full line up confirmed!
We’re excited to confirm the complete line up for Holy Mountain Party (curated with Birmingnham artist Harminder Judge) on the opening weekend of Fierce Festival. . .
A psychedelic performance party which journeys into the dizzying landscape of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s 1973 cult classic Holy Mountain. Transforming the spaces of Digbeth’s Club PST, visitors can expect bodily contortion and hypnotic dance, live video installation, fire walking and bum painting. There’ll also be an unforgettable DJset by the mysterious Oni Ayhun, the talk of festivals across Europe. [Google Oni!]
You can also expect the latest tunes from New Cross’ finest, LuckyPDF… A brilliantly canny emerging artist group who will be launching their School of Global Art at Fierce. The night will be a sensory delight with audiovisuals from Chromatouch and Minuek.
Performance legend Brian Catling will present an abrasive ear-splitting intervention. There’ll be something new from rising star Eloise Fornieles, who’s last intervention at the Fierce Start Party involved her taking sleeping pills while tied to sixty odd helium balloons. Eloise will also be contributing a new work commissioned by Fierce called The Message.
Live artist/dancer Iona Kewney will be frenetically hurling her in a special version of Electric Wood scored by Joseph Quimby. While recent graduate Elenni Savvidou, will be using her body and camera to create a live visual backdrop throughout the night (see below).
Finally don’t miss Joost Nieuwenburg’s Two Surfaces in Contact comprising 6000 matches and sand-papered-soled shoes. . .
