Presented by Rachael Young

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 young women are refused entry into a London nightclub; their bodies are brown and soft.  

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, LGBTQ to the front, People of Colour to the front!!!
