After ceaselessly setting fire to every possible basement and festival stage with Ascendant Vierge partner-in-crime Paul Seul, Mathilde Fernandez is ready to perform under her own name in her second hometown of Brussels. Comparisons with big names like Kate Bush or punk-goddess Nina Hagen are never far off, but Mathilde IS THE MOMENT: her sparkling mix of drama, fun and everything in between captures the vibe of our times like no other.

This (twice postponed) tour is the first time she performs her 2021 record, Sensible, live for new and longtime fans...but her insatiable creative appetite - think music, fashion, visual art - has us hoping for an amuse-bouche of some brand new neo-baroque solo work. Her highness will see you now.

Bernardino Femminielli works in media including music, performance, poetry and film under the guise of a hyper-sexual, genderless provocateur. His work and character are a synthesis of mysticism, transgression, danger and pleasure– a detached crooner deep within a distopian discotheque. Narrating in French and Spanish, from classical arrangements to brutal Italo-disco, from heavy cosmic drone to mutant industrial: his sonic ventures reflect his adopted personas. His lyrics explore an imagined illicit paradise full of excess, drugs, bars, pleasure, darkness and companionship. Much of his poetry is arranged using the cut-up technique and is composed similarly to works of transgressive fiction. On stage, the confrontational yet intensely vulnerable performer explores the rich and dark energy of French and German cabaret– emphasizing the “total” performance where poetry, music, film, and dance coalesce.
