Web Edition

How Balance Club / Culture Festival – Web Edtion works: We publish the contributions according to ⤵︎ the timetable on this website. 
From 20⁠–24 May, our website will feature DJ sets, lectures, multimedia texts, workshops, artist talks, audio-visual works and artistic fashion-pieces. As a grand finale, we will release our Balance-Sampler “Various Artists – Tender Squads” on festival Sunday and, admittedly, fulfill our own long standing wish. The Balance Club / Culture Festival sees itself as an interface between club culture and social critique. All contributions of the festival “Tender Squads” address the question which constellations and alliances can be imagined for the emancipatory potential of a different world to unfold? Which alliances do we want to form and where do we have to insist on difference for our alternatives to be viable? What form of (feminist) care and support do we need for each other right now? Together with you we want to find out, more urgently than ever, how we can maximally destabilize structural inequalities.

At just 19 years old, born-and-raised Brazilian LYZZA is taking over the experimental club scene. She’s a DJ, producer, vocalist and curator connected to Fade to Mind (US)​ and ​Bala Club (UK)​. As a DJ, she has  become a familiar face during radical and underground club nights, appearing on line-ups alongside  acts like ​Fatima Al Qadiri​,  ​Yves Tumor​ and ​SOPHIE.​ (words by SHAPE Platform) 

For Balance Web Edition LYZZA created a beautiful visual mix of her own music including songs of her third EP “DEFIANCE”, released in November 2019 and embodying her fascinating take on contemporary pop music.
