As a part of the opening week of PASTLIVES, Sasahara has invited the mysterious MORDORKORE to organise Amsterdam’s very first Medieval fantasy rave! The Mordorks have a message for you:
Through forests deep, ‘oer mountains high, ‘cross the darkening seas, we the noble band of MORDORKORE commeth, to the low lands of Amsterdam to unite with the mighty weaver of queerophantasmic myths SasaHara! There shalt we make merrie long through the night ‘twixt the dark and enchanted realm of PASTLIVES! For every life a character, for every character a DJ, for every DJ a reveller! All bound together by a sacred rune! Come ye and join the great cosmic dance! Which rune shalt ye be cast?
This MORDORKORE rave takes place within the exhibition PASTLIVES. It is the second solo-show of the Amsterdam-based artist SasaHara (They/Them), who collaborates with a team of queer artists to give physicality to their mythological storytelling works. SasaHara (1993) is a French-Algerian artist based in Amsterdam since 2017. They work as a performance director, a drag transformer and a writer, playing with drag aesthetics in different formats (editorial, club, theatre) to create queerophantasmic narratives. Over the past years SasaHara has developed a long-term research project on the making of queer mythologies, the vectors of mythological communication and multimedia storytelling. This research has been gathered under the title “SasaHara Past Lives”, taking their body as a catalyst for untold queer stories and giving them a space to exist in for eternity through mythological storytelling
