Jean Biche is a performance artist, graphic artist and musician who creates a unique theatrical universe of baroque and often disturbing images which challenge the viewer with unresolved questions of personal boundary and the significance of ritual.
His work specifically unseats rote notions of sacrifice, heartbreak and gender by combining pop references, legend and nostalgia in subversive an unexpected combinations, a process which has been said to resemble a medieval exorcism in its erasure of comfortable presumption and unforgettable enigmatic tableaux.
Jean Biche earned his Masters degree in Illustration at La Cambre in 2001, and takes inspiration in his work from such outsider artists as Leigh Bowery or Felix Gonzales-Torres.
Jean Biche has collaborated with Yves-Noël Genod, An Pierlé, Damien Jalet, Pierre Droulers, Laetitia Bica, Mademoiselle Jean, Dominique Thirion, and many more.

The Stress is the DJ alter ego of Diederick van den Ende. Starting out in 2011, The Stress hosted Sunday afternoon chillwave / electro-pop parties in his hometown Utrecht and started DJ’ing. While the nu-disco wave spread across Europe, The Stress played his first gigs in Amsterdam. It was here that he developed his taste for progressive disco, mixed with queer-, vogue-, house-, internet-, new beat-, and electro-influences.

Because of The Stress’ involvement in activism and academia, The Stress solely plays for queer, pride and intersecting causes worth supporting.
