Does the weight of the chronicle blues seem to stick to your skin lately?
Sensing that it’s hard to let go when reality becomes a
NFT token ? We’re aware of this, and that’s why no one will be fooled: our celebrations are crafted from all the fake “savoirs” and DIY potions. No ancient or laboratory techniques here, only self-made experience, with minimal or no technical assistance, and only your luck to succeed.
Let us introduce the talented nightlife wizards, who will spread their master-tracks all over La Salle des Fêtes.

´STANLEY (aka Stanley Ollivier) is a dancer/performer, choreographer and DJ based in Brussels, Belgium. Navigating between different artistic scenes, his approach as a DJ allows him to claim his mixed heritage, heal our bodies and rethink the multiple possibilities of being together through listening. He does not stick to a precise musical style, but learns, explores and combines frequently. He hopes to contribute to the emergence of innovative diversity and create new tools to bring more joy and freedoms. ´

The show on the first evening (15th April) is a separatistic evening for people of the global majority/BIPOC. So please only book that evening if you identify with those terms. The show on the 16th of April is open for all. ---- We, Adam and Amina Seid Tahir, see how the terms BIPOC and people of color are less fortunate in their attempts of combating white supremacist andimperialistic ideologies, since they form in relation to whiteness (those ”not of color”) and therefore keeps whiteness as the norm. We rather use the term people of the global majority since we aren’t interested in identifying in relation to whiteness or white supremacy. ---- The term Global Majority was coined by Rosemary Campbell-Stephens. ”Global Majority refers to people who are Black, Asian, Brown, dual-heritage, indigenous to the global south, and or have been racialised as 'ethnic minorities’.” 1 This term was created for people of the global majority to not have to identify in relation to whiteness and to emphasize the fact that these groups make up the majority of the world’s population, specifically 80%. ---- The reason for choosing to use the term BIPOC despite this, is because we’re aware that the term people of the global majority hasn’t received as widespread attention yet. And since our main goal for this showing is to welcome our siblings from the global majority for a showing without the presence of a white colonial gaze, we choose to use the term that seems to be most commonly used in this festivals locality. ---- 1. Global Majority; Decolonising the language and Reframing the Conversation about Race” by Rosemary Campbell-Stephens, 2020
