‘YES EVERYTHING NOW 2’ party
Djs: Moonilena (SE), Rosemary Loves A Blackberry (RU), Фера Ледяева
featuring artist Vasilina Polyanina
YES EVERYTHING NOW #2 is the second of the series of parties, which started a year ago in the framework of DOTYK festival of queer culture. We present a selection of contemporary electronic music and art, connected to queer and feminist contexts, and invite you to join our drastic celebration. YES EVERYTHING NOW is a slogan, necessary for the restitution of the repressed desire from under the police truncheon, from the unrealized utopias, public restrooms and kitchens to the public space. This discotheque must be impossible! No sexism, no racism, no homophobia!

Rosemary Loves A Blackberry

Her intense and productive musical career began more than 12 years ago, during this time she was a member of many bands, experimenting with punk, jazz and electronic music.

Being the collector of records with an ideal taste, she has been making the dance floors of Minsk bars and secret parties sparkle for several years. Not subscribing to a single genre, she skillfully weaves into her mixes everything from low-fi house to hardcore punk, feeling every one of your nerve. This night we are waiting for a languid and mysterious DJ set from Fera Ledyayeva. Not for yourself – for the feelings. For fans of unexpected dance music.
She’s an artist who works with graphics, photos, installation, performance and poetry. Vasilissa Polyanina addresses the themes of self-identification, sacrifice, manifestation of the psychological and the affective through the body, and the social through the private. Her works were presented at solo and group exhibitions in Belarus, Ukraine, Italy, the United Arab Emirates and others. She was the founder of the art and literary magazine “Makulatura” (2014-2017).
Especially for Yes everything now # 2 Vasilisa will present a new artwork.
