My tool, my everything is a durational performance about masculinity, time and the power we feel when holding on to our tool.

Luca Hillen – Misericordia
Fr. 30-03 / 16:00 & 20:00
Come and join Misericordia; a guided tour through the fair with a twist. During the tour, an experience of balance between the external world and the physical inner reality is created. Through direct sensual experience, the constant confusion of the mind is removed. A performance that get’s you out of your never ending spinning mind, closer to a state of non judgement. Back into the body. Into the sense.

Sat. 31-03 / 14:00 & 17:00
Anan Striker and Luuk Wezenberg (better known as MONOBROS) created a performance especially for Unfair, focussing on experiencing a space adventure through classical synthesizer sounds, tapes, space echo effects and sample kits.

Joeri Woudstra – The Deejay is present™
Sat. 31-03 / 20:00
As an extension to his spot at Funfair18, Joeri will take the stage behind 8 turntables with a one off visual private sensory conversation piece in public discourse. Normally presented in a club context, the exhibitionist space created by Funfair will be reshaped through a composition of normalized sounds and technical tools.

Avan Omar – The Balance
Sun. 01-04 / 16:00
The balance is a performance about the body being under someone else’s control and the myth that we are in charge of ourselves. The body is trying to do things that it cannot always succeed in. It comes across that we aren’t always in charge.
