Nightclubbing

Rachael Young's badass band of super-humans embrace Afrofuturism and the cult of Grace Jones in NIGHTCLUBBING, presented as part of IGNiTE

POST PUNK / POST FEAR / POST PANIC

Rachael Young and her badass band of super-humans embrace Afrofuturism and the cult of Grace Jones in NIGHTCLUBBING; an explosive new performance bringing visceral live music and intergalactic visions to start a revolution.

1981: Grace Jones releases her landmark album ‘Nightclubbing’; her body is brown and soft.

2015: Three women are refused entry into a London nightclub; their bodies are brown and soft.

Grace Jones; a dark skinned, androgynous, Jamaican woman, transcending societal norms to become an international superstar.

Then later, three young black women, discriminated against and excluded, their bodies branded; ‘undesirable’. WE are those women, we zoom through galaxies and solar systems, traveling through time, preparing for our moment to land…IT’S NOW!

Women to the front, LGBTQIA++ to the front, People of Colour to the front!!!

NIGHTCLUBBING was created with the kind support of Arts Council England, Camden People’s Theatre, The Lowry (‘Developed with’), Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership (Compass Commission), Live Art UK, Diverse Actions, The Marlborough Theatre and Greenwich University.

Show run time: 55mins

There will be a post show club night event, under 18's to accompanied by an adult - expect DJ's and lots of dancing 8:30pm - late.
