With nothing to prove and nothing to lose in the era of COVID-19, has the joy of an at home dance party replaced the experience of clubbing? Have dedicated streaming sites and pop-up club nights like Boiler Room, BBZ, United We Stream, Club Quarantine and Club Matryoshka irrevocably changed the way we party, or just adapted to unusual circumstances?
Join Assistant Curator Lauren Bassam and artist and dance-practitioner Saoirse Amira Anis as they explore this topic and the concept of the ‘online’ or ‘at home’ club both as a safe space, but also as a space for self-expression, connection and joy. Part of our Night Fever: Designing Club Culture season.
