A hypnotic audio visual performance about the life of others, which uses our collective memory to confront us with our own impressions and feelings.
Based on amateur and family film archives from the 1920′s to present times, Intruders is an audio-visual memory remix of anonymous stories and portraits, a dancing conversation with our own ghosts. Attracted by nostalgia and voyeurism, we are led into a time travel in which we areÂ increasingly followed by familiar, suspicious and curious glances of unknown human figures, seeking our attention in the present time. Intruding our collective memory, the pictures use their own history to feed our inner emotions and internalised fictions.
Intruders is co-produced by the video art residency Bandits-Mages and the national French archive Centre CICLIC. Inspired by 4000 watched films and 26 hours of collected archive footage, Intruders is an unique contemporary historical document with more than 2000 live sampled and manipulated audio and video sequences.
Dealing with collective memory as well as the intimacy and transience of being, the actuality of this audiovisual performance seems to be timeless in today’s interconnected media society, which produces permanently archives.
Parade starts as a playground where everyone builds its own daily personal mythology, filled with words and characters. And one morning you decide to throw them away. Because this is not enough any more. And crisis can happen to anyone, any time. Then you just have to cut the pieces again and leave.
We talk about spam messages, white lights, birds, electricity, schizophrenia and of course about the band Abba.

Based in Berlin, swub is a DJ and music composer mainly in the field of audiovisual performances, live cinema and video productions.
Inspired by his long-time passion about jazz music, he started to mix early his favourite records in the end of the 90ties and was one of the founders of the travelling jazz party âChew-Chew-Clubâ, which toured successfully from 2002 to 2006 through many different German clubs.
Over the years, his initial 30ties to 60ties sound melt down with electronic music. His contemporary sets are a rich variety of jazzy breaks, house and dubswing.
In 2012, he started to produce own songs and remixes for his DJ-sets and collaborated one year later with the French video artist A-li-ce to create the sound for her new audiovisual performance “Parade”, followed by the joint project “Intruders” in 2014. Currently, he produces his first solo EP.

My greatest pleasure in doing music is to join apparently “old-fashioned” sounds with broken beats and a heavy bass.
