About

Disco and punk come together in this energetic opening performance

London, late 1970s: the heyday of joyfully swinging glitter-disco. But brooding in the wings a darker music culture is about to break through. Joy Division singer Ian Curtis makes poetic, sombre music, to which the dancing is electric, angular and jerky. How could disco, post-punk and new wave bloom simultaneously? Can they come together in one body? In his exciting group work Le syndrome ian, Christian Rizzo looks for an answer to these questions on a – very appropriate - golden dance floor.
