{cyborg} {multiple selves} {social codes}

Malika Fankha’s performance Oxy Moron circles around the character of the cyborg that, with its humanoid appearance and robot behaviour, defies binary categorisation. What is real and what is fake? What is male, what is female? What is fiction and what is reality?

Malika Fankha- Oxy Moron

INFO: The show on March 10th is followed by an artist talk.

Oxy Moron plays on multiple ideas of the self and its seamless travel between fiction and reality, magic and science, the present and the future. What is memory and what is a future vision? And anyway, what’s “normal” these days as identities, social status and physicalities are subject to permanent change? Malika Fankha juggles with these contradictions, thus questioning our thinking in stereotypes and analysing the meaning of bodies and humans in the digital age.

Malika Fankha is a dancer, choreographer, sound poet and DJ. She has collaborated with such artists as Superamas, Tino Sehgal, Maureen Kaegi and Anna Mendelssohn. To devise and present her pieces, she has worked, for example, at brut, Tanzquartier Wien, WUK, the Vienna Dance Festival as well as Tanzhaus Zürich, Art Basel, the Kaaitheater in Brussels and the Cullberg Ballet in Stockholm.
