Join Rachael Young & her badass band of super-humans as they embrace Afrofuturism & the cult of Grace Jones in this explosive performance bringing music & intergalactic visions to start a revolution.

Running from: Tue 08 - Sat 12 May.

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 and becoming 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!

But the question is: Jones once admitted her song 'My Jamaican Guy' was actually about a member of The Wailers she fancied at the time, stating "[....] was with somebody else. He was a beautiful guy - he doesn’t even know I wrote it about him.” But which member of The Wailers was she talking about?
