VANDEWEYER / ILLVIBE / DRAKE FEAT. REAL GEIZT / SPLIDTTERCRIST

Marimba, vibraphone, metal plates, drums, record players, and voice boxes – all turned inside out. These are the weapons of choice when the Belgian vibraphonist Els Vandeweyer, American drummer Hamid Drake, turntablist DJ Illvibe and rap masters Real Geizt / Splidttercrist // Imitierte Signale from Berlin take the stage in a creative showdown.

The Berlin segment of the band met on a Real Geizt project at last spring's Wiener Festspiele; at A L'ARME, they team up with the legendary Hamid Drake for the first time ever. Vandeweyer takes the lead, with improvisation and stagecraft playing a central role. This summit of improvisational artists and rap mavericks will start from "intersections of oceanic protuberances” (Real Geizt) and venture into territory yet unexplored.

At radialsystem Berlin on the 1st August!
