Take me to the top! The 180 BPM thrill ride that is Shangaan Electro boom boom boom into Bristol for their first full live performance in the city, intoxicating all they pass on their high-velocity path. led by South African Shangaan ambassador and animateur Nozinja, their hyper futuristic energy flash of turbo-charged rhythms, mind-boggling legwork and rainbow colours was given a teaser at their sold-out dance workshop in July, but can now be witnessed in its full, frenetic glory. The one-of-a-kind live dance show hits The Exchange for a midweek throwdown. Footloose and far out.
Very special guest Heatsick (PAN) makes it a double bill of dreams with his own shaking of the dancefloor kaleidoscope, following up his legendary “Extended Play…” takeover of The Cube Cinema earlier this year with a straight-up shot of his irresistible Casio disco hypnotherapy, the perfect counterpoint before the beat count steps up…
Part of Out Of Place, a roaming series of events that explores non-standard performance spaces in and around the Bristol area. A diverse line-up of international music makers and solo audio adventurers will respond to specially selected contexts including an abandoned farm, a shopping centre and a swimming pool…stirring up a sense of off-the-grid discovery for audience and performers alike. A succession of unmissable stereo field trips taking live music out of its comfort zone.
Out of Place is a co-production between Arnolfini and Qu Junktions. It is supported by PRS for Music Foundation’s New Music Plus…UK , an initiative developed in association with the hub, with funding from Arts Council England, Arts Council Northern Ireland, Arts Council Wales, Creative Scotland, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
