Stage of Plastic Dreams
A Question of Taste Opening Party

Online Party

March 12, 2021 / 20:00

Pera Museum presents virtual event series “Stage of Plastic Dreams” in collaboration with HYPERCORTEX and with the support of the British Council. Organized in parallel to the A Question of Taste exhibition, the “Stage of Plastic Dreams” event series brings musicians and visual artists together in a virtual event space open to participants.

The Opening Party for A Question of Taste exhibition on March 12 will host a set by iz (Elif Koçak) with tunes bordering on electronic music, enriched by subgenera and embellished with experimental selections; as well as by a performance by AVgen (Lal Avgen) created with shapes and colors, bringing together a visual, sound-sensitive world based on codes and videos. Then Çiçek Çocuk and Kübra Uzun will take the stage to perform “Our Crystal Spectacles”, an electronic blend of cult Broadway classics with queer narratives of the past and Çiçek Çocuk’s own songs.

Program
20:00 Digital door opening
20:30 iz and Lal Avgen
21:15 Çiçek Çocuk and Kübra Uzun

Opening and closing sets: DJ tender feelings

Participants can join the performances on the event day on plastikdusler.com
