Biography

Feminalz is a collective of transgender entities, expressed through their choreographic and performative practice in the techno-burlesque Image snatchers. In the author's points, social norms are being challenged, the fools are made of political correctness, they perform sharp political satire, they change their roles in order to draw those aspects from the craziness of social roles, which at the same time make the audience laugh and terrify. They perform more than ten performances annually, the program connects the MC, occasionally invites guests into the dance vault, and their home stage is Klub Gromka at AKC Metelkova.
