tAngerinecAt to perform at ‘Making The Strange Familiar’ by Instigate Arts to launch the Wonder Women Festival 2017 on March 2nd at Manchester Art Gallery

Making The Strange Familiar, curated by Instigate Arts as part of the Wonder Women festival launch at Manchester Art Gallery on Thursday 2nd March will see tAngerinecAt bringing their unique sound to the gallery atrium.
Multi-instrumentalists Zheka and Paul, using field recordings, samples, vocals, hurdy-gurdy & whistles, finely craft sexy and dangerous EBM/Post-Industrial/Post-Punk with personal protest lyrics, sharp satirical imagery and a sweet sadomasochist vibe.

Formed in Ukraine in 2008 tAngerinecAt have four albums to date and performed hundreds of shows all over UK and Eastern Europe.

“Watch out for: tAngerinecAt. This is some of the most powerful music I have heard in a long time, and holds a message too. They manage a real art; creating sound which people enjoy; difficult to believe there were only two musicians on stage.”

Launching the 2017 festival, Instigate Arts takes over Manchester Art Gallery for a special one-night-only event called Making The Strange Familiar inspired by the exhibition Strange and Familiar, a portrait of modern Britain as seen through the lens of international photographers and curated by the documentary photographer Martin Parr.

This is a one-of-a-kind evening, dedicated to making the invisible visible. The gallery spaces will be handed over to experimental and unsung artists, musicians and performers who will create bold, live-art events in response to the images and what they say about the social, cultural and political identity of women in 2017.
