From 8 p.m. to midnight // DJs TIGNA$$E + Je suis TBA + Cham & Anya


From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Natalia Balska will present her work developed during her production residency in the lab. She will talk about her project entitled "Uexküll Animal" inspired by robotics and biocybernetics.

With an approach between design, prototyping and art, “Uexküll Animal - Ray'Bot” sets to explore the idea of Umwelt, described by Jakob von Uexküll, which was the basis for many early biocybernetic models of perception. “Uexküll Animal - Ray'Bot” has begun as an open source AIY project. Within this residency, Uexküll Animal's code will be used to re-construct a narrative of 'Ray Cat' as proposed by Françoise Bastide and Paolo Fabbri within the nuclear semiotics program. Treating the initial narrative as a springboard to examine possible futures alongside robotic companions.

From 8pm to 12am, come enjoy the terrasse and listen to good music with DJs selected by Patisserie Bela Vista !

Surplombée de sa crinière imposante, elle nous déniche des sons d’ailleurs qui surprennent sans équivoque. TIGNA$$E propose de nouveaux horizons musicaux, tout en déployant une énergie singulière, forte, familière, et incitant la réciprocité. Lorsde ses performances, elle flanche notamment pour le rap, l’Afrobeat, le Reggaeton, le Dancehall, le Dembow, le Tarraxo, le Kuduro, le Ngom, le Baile Funk, le Kizomba, le Jersey Club, la Bmore et bien plus. Ses prestations sont physiquement contagieuses, en plus d’incarner un relais immersif entre l’auditoire et le talent des artistes qu’elle diffuse.
