Chapter 3: What to expect
A crazed eco-sensual communal shindig. A wild art-house party for interbeings held in partnership with The Psychedelic Society of Bristol. Finally, a political party you can get down with!
Hello creatures. KIN’s Posthuman Party is a transformational blend of the fantastical and the elemental. A gathering of tribes of all forms and feelings, celebrating the micro- and the meta-. Dance with the ancestors and craft the spaces of the future, where critters and kin can lose themselves and find each other.
Dress up, and engage in some character building. Hang more baubles on your identity tree as a multi-zone of performances swirl around the venue. There will be walkabout, live music, dance, calls to prayer, immersive states and vows of silence all taking place as we put spells and smells on each other. Can you recognise yourself in another? Can you put on your spandex, sweat out the indifference and learn to dance in this napalm rain? We are ecological beings, swimming not drowning in the waters of psyche! Pool party!

Makeovers from Miss HerNia
Since being excavated from the Whitechapel fatberg in 2017, Miss HerNia has been busy getting accustomed to what it’s like to be a 21st century city dweller. For KIN Miss HerNia will be providing revellers with posthuman makeovers. Prepare for impromptu discharge and mixed-media mess from this proto-pus performatrix. More here.
Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6 Music)
Busting loose from any kind of genre hashtags, Tom has this uncanny and hard to find knack for treating music, whether its from Ilford or Kinshasa, on a level. Rough at the edges guitar anthems, hi- rise bangers or rural D&B, Tom showcases new and unsigned music hand picked from as many far flung places a possible, a mish mash of sounds painstakingly put together into mix.
