'The wheel goes round and round, some are up and some are on the down, and still the wheel goes round.'
DeadClub™ is open to those who are not dead yet. The recently dead need not apply. Standing room only.
Between two heartbeats, the light creeps closer and closer to your number. It won’t be everyone, but it might be you. Now there is only the present moment. Everything unfolds second by second and it’s loud and hot and the body works as if by magic. Now the real trouble begins.
DeadClub™ is a new performance co-directed by Frauke Requardt and David Rosenberg, creators of Electric Hotel, Motor Show and The Roof. In a shift from their previous spectacular outdoor collaborations, Requardt & Rosenberg create an up-close experience for a limited audience.
Informed by research into memory distortion following traumatic events, they’ll take out the seats, and get the audience right into the middle of the whole mess
Remember: there is only now. Make the best of it.
