DUBAIS is the lo-fi multimedia Arabfuturist project of the multidisciplinary artist, cultural activist and musician Nadia Buyse who lives between Portland and Berlin. From absurd synth covers to bedroom pop songs about dating the devil and murdering him, Nadia’s music jumps from genre to genre, being thread together by a strong DIY Aesthetic and video art that spans over installation, performance, visual albums, experimental pop operas etc. Nadia uses the tropes of pop music to examine Diasporic migration, Neo-liberal dystopia, emotional incapacitations, consumer technologies, hybrid identities, intersectional feminism, and transnational communities. Nadia Buyse's performances are both audiovisual and physical, since with her lyrics and her own body she comments on the experience of the queer, non-white and nomadic body. In Sound Acts she presented the Americas project, which involves elements of dance, storytelling, video installation, blood, tears and sweat.
