"Deeply embedded in the Manchester underground, Katz Mulk was born out of the Human Heads crew. The trio makes warped electronics, auto tuned improv and loose pop music that combines the best of hipstertronics and hardcore avant-garde music." – Kraak
Katz Mulk is a performance collective featuring Andrea Kearney, Ben Knight, Ben Morris, and Siân Williams. Their work pulls together crude electronics, field recordings, narrative fragments, dance, and sculptural interventions to create a sticky radiophonic syrup. Katz Mulk’s seek to inhabit the marginal spaces in-between structure and improvisation; producing scores in which movement, sounds and voices mingle and cohere into an awkward present.
For this performance Katz Mulk will be joined by Fay Nicolson. Fay is an artist working across painting, printmaking and performance who uses abstraction, pattern and motif to explore qualities of perception, modes of transformation and the potential for change. Human gestures, in the form of movement, mark and voice, are used as materials. They are 'trained', manipulated and choreographed throughout her work. Embodied knowledge and the ideologies expressed through educational structures inform the backbone of her research.

Mary Hurrell is an interdisciplinary artist working across sound, performance, sculpture and text to explore choreography of the body. She is interested in forms of language and movement in relation to physical and psychological experience; drawing on themes of desire, water and the perceptual and sensory fields of the body and its incorporeal fluidity.

SRC is the Brussels based duo of the dancer-choreographer Bryana Fritz & the artist-musician Henry Andersen. As S-R-C they devise performative reading encounters, but for tonight's performance they will draw on their individual practices to create a desktop choreography out of projections; stillness and a spoken, mutating litany of words in French, German & English. As a dancer Bryana has performed in the works of She performed in the works of Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, Xavier le Roy, and many others. Henry released his Stanzas LP on the Belgian-based KRAAK label.
