Class War on the Dance Floor is Marika Prately’s solo electronic project. Marika is an award winning multidisciplinary composer, improviser and performance artist from Wellington, New Zealand. Her work has been performed in festivals, gigs and events in New Zealand, UK, and Europe, with a diverse range of collaborators, ensembles and theatre productions.

Heleyni is genre bending, fusing a mix of indie rock, electronic art pop, pure experimental noise, and catchy melodies. Echoing the aesthetic of Riot Grrrl, her songwriting reflects the worlds of political contradiction, gender experience and the challenges of Capitalism in our time. She plays accompanied by sister Marika Pratley & friends.
