True to the Horst Arts & Music DNA, events in Horst Club will sporadically be amplified by performances and artistic interventions. A Horst Club night is where liberation begins and emotions flow freely. In our desire to make the first club season special, Horst teamed up with the multidisciplinary curators Martín Zícari and Leen Van Ende to carefully craft a surprising performance and intervention program for selected club nights.
Writer, producer and curator Martín proposes an experience where "ghosts, entities, and spirits mingle freely, haunting the dance-floor. Imagine the exhausted raver, the dark-room bound faggot, the benevolent-yet-scary-trippy-girl, and the Latinx magazine diva, all lost in the dancefloor maze, craving for heat and connection.”
For Leen, the starting point is the queer roots of club culture, an escape for these people and bodies to find freedom and enchantment in the night. “These creatures of the night celebrate not only their bodies, but invite the public to join them into a curious trip down the nightly rabbit hole. Dark and light, mysterious and funny, boldly and loomingly present.”
With the goal of disrupting not only club experience standards but also individual immersion, these happenings are meant to create context for sensory exploration, collective discourse and building connection with oneself, others and the space. From the personal towards the embodiment of togetherness.
