pixelrave aims to build bridges between the underrepresented actors of underground dance subcultures from different geographies, by re-creating the radical inclusiveness of dancefloors in a virtual deterritorialized location. The construction process is part of the performative act, proposing an inclusive virtual community as a laboratory for confrontations, rewiring rituals that are prohibited due to the pandemic. In its digital dimension pixelrave will gather non-normative aesthetics to de-construct conventionally extractive digital spaces.

The 19th of December 2020 the first edition of pixelrave has been possible thanks to the participation of Club CoWeed (TUR), Deaf Rave (GBR), Dudakların Cengi (TUR), Go Grrrls (THA), House of Tupamaras (COL), Krip-Hop Nation (USA), Mamba Negra (BRA) and Queerwaves (TUR).

pixelrave is doing its best to be an accessible experience, please find here our ACCESSIBILITY STATEMENT.
