How to become a good snatcher?
Emanat’s technoburlesque Image Snatchers, a corporeal exploration of (pop) artistic forms balancing on the thin line between entertainment and critique, satire and tragedy, music and dance, feminism and strip-teasm, invites you to a technoburlesque workshop where you will works with strangely sensual thefts that stir the imagination and create short – but sweet stage interventions.
The workshop will be led by members of the Image Snatchers collective, who will each contribute in their own way with their snatching tools and help you with the realization of the techno-burlesque act.
If you are no stranger to dancing, singing, clowning, burlesque, post queer cabaret, and tongue-in-cheek subversion of topical contemporary phenomena, if you want everyone to see the imitation of your favourite star, if you don’t take yourself too seriously, and if you can’t do without the disco stuff, apply today!
Friday-Sunday, October 21.-23. 2022
GT22, Glavni trg 22, Maribor.

The object carries meaning within itself. When the object meets
we are looking for its value, level of usefulness, general meaning. In the subject matter, let it be everyday or an art object, a wish and a goal are always expressed.
When the objective is achieved, the object enters the scene: its-your everyday reality becomes tangible. Object gradually begins to draw a portrait of an individual who has we can see endless variations and styles in it a story about a person, a society, an era. When the subject starts draw out the nuances of what it means to be human, contribute
would be a kind of symbolic memory: it is no longer an object in itself
itself, but “the object of something,” and regardless of whether
the gesture accompanying the object, spontaneous or not, is revealing
choice, direction. – Xavier Bobés
The workshop Memory of the subject, which will be led by the recognized Spanish creator Xavier Bobés, will focus on to the study of everyday objects, their usefulness, meaning and dynamics of movement and animation techniques through studying the body of the animator and the animated object, space between them, rhythm and choreography. The masterclass will focus on the development of creative methodology from researching an individual object to deciphering it further steps: research, dynamic writing, group improvisations, choreographies, animations. With a row different theatrical keys and researching different ones animation techniques, the participants will attend intensive workshop created short solo performances that will be based on research of personal everyday objects.
The workshop is intended for theater creators and creators in other fields, who in one way or another connect with subject theater techniques.
