Gender fluid Iranian-American artist Dornika is a Berlin based musician, visual artist, drag performer and vocal coach. Born in Tehran, she migrated with her mom to the US at age 7 only to move back a few years later. She moved to Berlin in 2017, establishing herself shorty after in the vibrant queer nightlife scene, creating alter-ego Many Faced Godx, and mixing drag, music and dance performance in festivals and clubs in Europe.
Artwife is a queer matchmaker, curator and DJ who approaches mixing with thematic explorative care, peculiar genre splicing and juicy serotonin balm always and everywhere の˚⋆
