🎼🎹 PUNK FEMINIST AND QUEER FESTIVAL 🎸🍺
PUNK IS NOT DEAD, they say ...
Yes but ... 🎸 Because the current punk rock scene is predominantly male, white and heterosexual. 🎸 Because there are times when the daughters-trans-girls' talents converge in limitless emulation, often far from official history. 🎸 Because punk and rock have just seen these adventurous scenes emerge and the amazing adventure of DIY (Do It Yourself) ...
Queer Week organizes a festival including a round table / debate around the place of women and trans-gays in rock and punk from yesterday to today: who are these famous Riot Grrrrls, what is it? what queercore and what has become of this protest spirit today? It will follow an open scene between girls dykes and trans under the sign of punk, rock and joy 🎉🎉🎉
📯 Program of the evening📯
> 19h-20h30: participatory round table with Manon Labry and Louise Barrière, Chloé Maréchal and Estel N'khaly. 🎤
> 21 - 23h30: Queer Week x Selfish, open stage for girls, trans people and non-binary people 🎸
🍺 Conference and discussion 🎤
The first part of the evening will take the form of a round table on the legacy of Riot Grrrls and Queercore today. It is meant to be an opportunity to share experiences with the audience as a spectator-ice-s and or as a musician.
A writer on the North American feminist punk subculture and a member of the garage rock band "No milk today", Manon Labry published in 2016 a stunning essay entitled "Riot Grrrls. Chronicle of a feminist punk revolution. She is the first guest of the QW for this round table. Louise Barrière, is our second guest: she is preparing a thesis entitled "Punk-feminist festivals in France and Germany since 2003: reception and development of Riot Grrrl culture in French and German punk scenes" at the University of Lorraine.
Two discussants will bring their lighting. Chloé Maréchal is a musician, music journalist at Rock & Folk, Barbi (e) turix and Hardies. Estel N'khaly is the author of "Punk save the queens. Women and feminism in punk music and literature in France, Great Britain and the United States ", research paper supported in 2017 at ENS Lyon. In particular, she communicated last October on the Slits "Typical Girls, Typical Punk" during a study day of the PIND (Punk Is Not Dead).
Writer of a thesis about Northern American punk feminist subculture and part of the garage rock band "No Milk Today", Manon Labry published in 2016 an essay called "Riot Grrrls. Chronicle of a feminist punk revolution. "(" Riot Grrls, Chronicle of a Punk Feminist Revolution ").
She is invited to a discussion about women and queers in rock music. It would be a great place to share experiences and knowledge. Chloé Maréchal, musical journalist and Estel N'khaly, ENS Lyon student will be there to facilitate.
