Club Luz

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


Club night of electro songs and B-movie visuals, featuring a 12 number, Kraftwerk and Kylie-inspired, Laurie-Anderson-on-speed solo set, based on Sam Fuller's Shock Corridor.

The songs focus on Trent, black inmate of a mental hospital, who believes he is white and a member of the Ku Klux Klan. The show reformulates the film, making of itself almost a fractured musical on the post-colonial Welsh condition.

Inspired by Kraftwerk, The Fall, Bowie, Brel and Kylie, the singer at the lone microphone walks the theme through songs on the colonised split brain, alienation, aspiration, grief, extreme solutions and the redemptive power of pop.
