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, travelling 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!!!
