Astro Zenica: ‘Hold your tits and hide your keys, clown mother of The House of Savalon has crash landed on the kerb to explore the gutter outside Cambridge Junction. Who said your toothbrush should be electric anyhow? It never hurt to have glass shoved in my eye. Introducing Astro-Zenica. If she hasn’t been in your arm then one of her sisters will ‘av been. Unless you were one of those arse holes. Who knows what will happen next….’

Jose Funnell: an interdisciplinary artist, dancer and activist based in London. Through live performance, sound and the workshop space, their practice explores the radical potential of embodiment as a site of critical pedagogy, healing and liberation. Their work considers the gaze as material, our embodied relationships to technologies of the gaze, and the experiential dynamics of sharing space, all in relation to structures of power. Both their artistic practice and activist work aims to centre and serve those most alienated by the historic projects of white supremacy and the imperialist capitalist patriarchy. They have facilitated workshops for the Barbican, Cell Project Space, Migration Matters Festival, Prepster, Lovetank, Metro Charity and Live Art Development Agency. They have presented solo work at the ICA (London); Les Urbaines (Lausanne, Switzerland), Steakhouse Live (London), Slap Festival (York), The Albany (London), CLAY (Leeds) and Centrum Sztuki Współczesnej Zamek Ujazdowski (Warsaw). They have performed internationally with collaborators for institutions including Tate Modern (London), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), the Swiss Institute (New York), Museu Serralves (Porto), Bergen Kunsthall (Bergen), Whitechapel Gallery (London), the Serpentine Gallery (London), and the Royal Academy (London).


Rayne Gel: Co-Founder and a resident DJ at Cambridge’s euphoric cult rave Wiggle Room. Rayne’s new album ‘Drink from the river’ is available now on all streaming services.
