Evil spirits are wandering around Nieuw Dakota. Join us at Dakota By Night on Friday 2 September to experience the ritual cleansing of body and mind. Artists, performers, musicians and exorcists unite to free the place and its visitors from their demons.
Dakota By Night: The Ritual Cleansing
Friday 2 September
21:00 - 03:00 hrs
Alex Zamora is a visual artist and will transform Nieuw Dakota into a gloomy arena where the rituals take place that night. He will lure evil spirits out of the cracks and holes with smoke and fire and then chase them away.
Bella Báguena is a Spanish trans femme non-binary artist who mixes different disciplines such as music, performance, and jewelry design. During Dakota By Night, she will hunt for the close emotional experience between her and the spectator, a sincere and devil-free channel of exchange. The instruments used are words, body expression or the energy of the voice.
Leandro Barzabal works on the border of experimental music and performance. He will mutilate an electric guitar, the archetype of male demons that will be faced that night. During this ritual, the instrument takes on a new meaning, as with each action there is less and less left to deconstruct. Destroy it together with him, or even better, bring your own guitar to sacrifice it as well.
Clara Saito will perform Sh*d*ws (2022) together with musician Rafa Barreto. This performance is about transforming, never becoming and entering the paranoia of the other about yourself. It's about having symptoms of mental illness, excess, being able to escape and multiple dark nights.
The rest of the participating artists will be announced soon. Keep an eye on Nieuw Dakota's Instagram.
