The techno-burlesque Image Snatchers is a silent body comedy that mocks the rigidity of social roles. The show uncritically appropriates, copies and glues together femininity, masculinity, family relationships, machismo and other degenerated social roles that are unrighteously considered normative. When the "snatchers" totally expose themselves, removing their social attires layer by layer, they do not find the essence but realise that the essence is nothingness. The performed travesties are the opium that makes living bearable. This amusing play in cross-dressing and the excessive behaviour of the performers alike are both the results of the great sexual and bodily liberation from social bonds. Techno-burlesque is a regular, modular, always surprising, and never quite the same art-social event constituted by members of the group Feminalz. In nine years of existence, the group has created over sixty acts, and in every show, they use successful strategies of appropriation and recycling to deliver a brand-new experience.
