I AM NOT A JOKE


I AM NOT A JOKE is a concert.
I AM NOT A JOKE is a performance.
I AM NOT A JOKE is not one, but many.
What if the 90s Riot Grrrl Movement, 60s Feminist Performance Art and Third World Feminism would have met and collaborated together?
The band THE KILL JOYS whose members are Olivia Hyunsin Kim, Magda Drozd and a drum computer, start with this question in their Concert-Performance I AM NOT A JOKE. All three coming from a Performance Art background, being influenced by different streams of feminism especially from the Third World and sharing a passion for music á la Riot Grrrl, pick up where they have left off.
Especially under the current political climate where women need to fight (again!) for their voice and visibility, THE KILL JOYS want to address current issues which move us, upset us and unite us.
