The Hungarian-Serbian poet and performer Katalin Ladik is considered the “Yoko Ono of the Balkans” and a pioneer of noise and performance art in Southeastern Europe: With the “SoundBodyPoetry” of her radical body art performance UFO Party from 1969, she shook the artistic scene at the time and developed methods of experimental voice work and physical performance in the 1970s.


In their collaboration, German sound dancer Jule Flierl and Slovenian choreo-vocalist Irena Z. Tomažin celebrate their shared interest in Ladik's artistic position:
a homage that blurs the boundaries between poetry, dance and experimental voice work, while continuing the two artists' own research into the physical experience of language and the articulation of different layers of the voice.

The duet U.F.O. – Hommage to Katalin Ladik received the award of the expert jury for the best performance of Gibanica Festival (Slovenia, 2023) and has toured to Brussels, Ljubljana, Zagreb, Belgrade, Salzburg, Vitlycke and Skopje.

  • To mark this iteration of U.F.O., the artists are releasing the LP U.F.O., which will be presented after the premiere.
  • On May 4 Katalin Ladik herself will be present for a panel and will give insights into her practice in a workshop on May 5.
  • Another panel with Bojana Kunst, Mateusz Szymanówka, Irena Z. Tomažin and Jule Flierl on May 5 following the performance will be dedicated to the topic of Voice-work, Care-Work.
