Jules Petru Fricker (LEGZ)


A performative exploration of queer becoming and celebration of gender fluidity full of hope and re-silience.

between – A queer science-fiction rite explores the interconnectivity of queer subjects and celebrates the range of gender identities. Jules Petru Fricker’s first solo rooted in their Berlin Drag practice cele-brates the rite of queer becoming. The Swiss-Romanian artist formerly known under their alter ego LEGZ guides the audience through a queer sci-fi journey full of hope and resilience. Through a time travel machine installation they invoke shredded memories of their vast audiovisual childhood archive. Between researches the body as an archive where the performer ultimately finds refuge on the dance-floor. Together with their music collaborators Aisha Devi and Bendik Giske they open up the space in between. The multimedia performance combines dance, sound, spoken word, video, and installation.
