hosted by Navaridas & Deutinger / with Sibylle Berg

20:00 - 21:30 Orpheum

Could the forging of unlikely alliances become the oblique strategy and secret sauce for the production of music, art, and political discourse? Helene Fischer & Yung Hurn? Anselm Kiefer & Jakob Lena Knebl? Byung-Chul Han & Michel Houellebecq? For the opening of this year’s edition, Elevate forges an alliance with the unlikely yet likeable hosts Marta Navaridas & Alex Deutinger, who playfully guide the audience and invited guests through the evening. As Unlikely Aliens, masked with analogue face filters and communicating via vocal transformers, they whimsically move to the intricate rhythms of sound wizard Manuel Riegler. Supported by unique visual artist Annemarie Arzberger, who translates digital aesthetics back into an analogue haptic environment, the Unlikely Aliens create a space of utopia, where we can hopefully all feel a little more welcome - despite our more or less alien idiosyncrasies.

A co-production between Elevate Festival - Music, Art and Political Discourse and PERFORMANCEINITIATIVE 22.
