Jerk Off Festival celebrates its 15 years birthday this year and if a lot has changed in our communities and our lives during these 15 years something didn't: our desire to defend the underground art scene and the artists who build it. 

 

Agenda :

 

14 september - 8pm - Micadanses / Tickets here

Every Drop Of My Blood 

Choreographic piece including a plastic installation and a live musical creation, where the three performers explore questions of gender and fluid identities, carrying the voice of those who exist otherwise than by heteronormative codes.

Cuir (Leather or queer because both words are homophone in French)

In a powerful hand-to-hand combat, two harnessed men play at manipulating each other's bodies. The careful pleasure they take in transforming each other into an instrument, a piece of equipment, a playground or a battlefield engages them in a consensual struggle. 

15 september - 27 september - Point Éphémère / Free entrance 

Warm inside

The intensity of Romy Alizée's work lies in the gap and balance between the seriousness and derision of sex, which goes hand in hand with that of posing and performance. Her photos are in a way repetitions aiming to persuade us that other relationships to our bodies and our sexualities are possible.

15.09 - 7pm : opening

17.09 - 8pm : visite with the artist and Dominique Gilliot 

16 september - 8.30pm - L'Archipel / Tickets here

La Cerise sur le Gâteau et ses sucreries (The cherry on top of the cake and other candies)

We are pleased to invite you to the screening of La Cerise sur le Gâteau, the first short film of La Branlée, your favourite local alternative porn collective. But beware, this premiere will not present you with one film but three! All these lewd creations will be placed under the sign of the eternal love between sex and food. The first two films are in French.

 

16 september - 12am - Le Klub / Tickets here

Sucré / Amer (Sweet / Sour)

A crazy sweet and sour party punctuated by performances, stripteases and some beautiful surprises that will bring you to an exclusive spicy Dark universe. Come dance with us!

17 september - 11.30pm - Le Klub / Tickets here

Frivole de Nuit (Frivolous at night)

Frivole meets Jerk Off in the queeraxie and to celebrate they transform the Klub in an intergalactic dancefloor where all the excesses are allowed.

21 and 22 september - 8pm - Point Éphémère / Tickets here

on se connaît de la nuit (we meet at night)

Amazingly affected by absences, based on the reading of Ce que le sida m’a fait (What AIDS did to me) by french critics Elisabeth Lebovici, on se connaît de la nuit oscillates between poetry, dance and design. The performance is in French without subtitles. 

 

23 september - 8pm - Point Éphémère / Tickets here

Dans Mon Dessin (In My Draw)

A multimedia performance where Jenny interrogates her transition has her going away. The performance is in French without subtitles. 

 

24 september - 8pm - Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers / Tickets here

Nirvana  

Between cross-dressing and seduction, Nirvana deploys an inventory of emblematic postures, composing a body language that collides references to various sports disciplines, classical statuary and to eroticism.

Dos (Back) 

Dos dives us into the steps of two dissonant men. In an observation ring, the physical attraction turns into shifting combinations. 

 

27 september - 8pm - Point Éphémère / Tickets here

Echoe's Fantasy - extended

The performance explores the singular, affective and performative relationship we have with everyday objects. Two people in a common space, but alone, are bored and busy. Work in progress. 

 

29 september - 6pm - À la folie / Free entrance
