Concert | INTERSEX
by Steven Warwick, aka HEATSICK and dance performance with Nicola Mascia
In his debut album, Intersex, Steven Warwick, aka Heatsick, musically interpreted the sexual theory of the Jewish-born physician Magnus Hirschfeld, who fled Nazi Germany in 1931. On stage, Heatsick works with a keyboard and manipulated guitar pedals to forge a sound reminiscent of the electronic music of the 1970s. In spring 2015 Steven Warwick spent time at Villa Aurora, as a fellow of Musikboards Berlin.
Steven Warwick (born in Great Britain, 1982) is a Berlin-based interdisciplinary artist and musician. Warwick is known for his solo project, Heatsick, and as a member of the duo Birds of Delay. As Heatsick, Warwick produces “unfinished, rough, and at the same time dreamy dance music that is always a little embarrassed to be called house” (De: Bug). In addition to vocals, he uses keyboards and percussion to create a conceptually discordant sound that is equally playful and challenging, a combination of concept art, politics, and dance floor.
Nicola Mascia (born in Turin, Italy, 1975) is a dancer and choreograph. He studied jazz and contemporary dance in Turin, Rome, and Los Angeles. In 1996, he moved to Berlin to work with the company Sasha Waltz [&] Guests. Mascia was involved in the creation, performance and international touring of many projects including “Allee der Kosmonauten”, “Zweiland”, “Körper”, “noBody”, “insideout”, “Dialoge 09 – Neues Museum” and “Dialoge 09 – MAXXI”. In 2005, together with Israeli choreographer and performer Matan Zamir, he co-founded the collaborative duo matanicola.
