Lethal Fantasies -March 25
In celebration of Bussy Temple’s one-year anniversary, Bussy Temple is presenting Lethal Fantasies in collaboration with HER 他 to host our first all women and non-binary international DJ lineups.
Celebrating the duplicity of divine femininity – nurture and danger –, Lethal Fantasies partydives into themes of kink and femme worship. The storyline draws on Greek myths of the sirens to discuss the ways in which femme care can be taken for granted, but just as easily turned on its head to subvert existing power dynamics. Through this space, Bussy Temple hopes to amplify and celebrate the power of the divine, monstrous feminine.
Bussy Temple is a collective of creatives organizing raves centering queers, trans, nonbinary, and femmes. Organically formed through the shared frustration of the lack of non cis-men queer spaces in Singapore, our parties serve as a social and political tool to expand and distort the vocabularies of queerness, as well as create and promote safe spaces for you to let go, glitch, and expand your way of being.
HER 他 strives to promote equality in the community for local and international musicians and artists through discourse and dance parties. HER explores issues of women and gender equality and supports all who contribute to the music and art industries.
