Part Grace Jones biopic, part live-rave, Nightclubbing is Young's explosive and 'fiercely political' performance, channeling the cult of Grace Jones and nightlife through an Afrofuturism lens.

Thursday 7 - Saturday 9 May.

Rachael Young and her badass band of superhumans embrace Afrofuturism and the cult of Grace Jones in Nightclubbing a fiery 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!
