Agente Costura (Berlin/Brazil)
Agente Costura is a sewing agent. She has been playing the Singer, a sewing machine, since 2003. In the daytime she tackles unwanted clothing, pins them down and cuts them up, transforming them into new wearable shapes. By nighttime, the Singer joins her fellow musicians and Lisa sews to the beat of the music, improvising on clothing based on rhythm and sound. The sewing machine is amplified and becomes a musical instrument, and new sculptural garments are created from old clothes. Agente Costura has performed extensively on an international level, including at The Vancouver Art Gallery, the Month of Performance Art- Berlin, the Bimhuis Amsterdam, Curitiba Fashion Week, among others. In 2014 she was Artist in Residence at Villa Waldberta in Munich, invited by the EU project What's the Deal.

KvT are a duo that shape ephemeral soundscapes from the overlapping churn of single simple elements — voice, resonance, repetition, movement, memory. They work with processes/sounds/movements close to imperceptibility, and transformation through layering/rhythm/pattern/repetition. Having recently collaborated with David Bryant of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and presented work on both coasts of the USA in 2017, KvT have become renowned for their ‘play anywhere’ approach, using battery-powered equipment to present work in any and all locations.
