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: two women are refused entry into a London nightclub; their bodies are brown and soft.   
WE are those two women, our bodies are brown and soft. We zoom through galaxies and solar systems, traveling through time, returning again and again to see if things have changed.  It’s time for a different rhythm, a different future, it’s time to take up space, make some noise and change the narrative. 

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