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.
00:30:00 - 01:00:00(Ghent (BE)) - concert
WAXDOLLS is a duo from Ghent whose great live reputation throws off the dreary image associated with the electro act. Their single 'Spoiled Rich Bitches' is getting plenty of play at the moment and after just one year they have managed to support Crystal Castles and Yuksek (at StuBru Mish Mash live). These two crop up now and again under the better-natured aliases of QuiOui and TripMondaine, but they pull the Waxdolls out of the bag for the heavier dance work.
Last time with a mini set, this time we go for the "full monty".

03:30:00 - 06:00:00(Prague (CZ)) - dj
It all started with lots of messages on his personal page asking if heâ€˜s a DJ or producer and if he wanna â€œCUM and PLAYâ€ . So he decided to start practicing with dj software and got the chance to play at the Heartbeats party, which was more about indie rock at that time.
He became a resident and right after transformed it into a regular rave crazyness at club Bordo in Prague. Now it is almost a year he decided to play trax for Czech ravers and his calendar becomes fuller by the day, even with international gigs.
