Sold-out nightclubs, dance floors filled with exuberant people and speakers blasting out swinging music. The rave culture of the eighties, with the Amsterdam RoxY as a creative center, unleashed a veritable revolution in the club scene and is now a source of inspiration for Mechanical Ecstacy. So don’t expect to see any seats, just a big spectacular dance floor where the musicians of Slagwerk Den Haag throw the electronic tracks by top producers Thijs de Vlieger and Jan-Bas Bollen into space, while the dancers of Club Guy & Roni push their bodies to extremes. With a word-spitting actress in the center, it’s impossible to tell where the party starts and the performance ends.
The performance will merge into the Afterparty of CaDance.
