|Description||Traditionally, the dance club is seen as a space where Deaf people do not take part in. SPIN interrogates this. SPIN is about reclaiming the dance club and the dance party as accessible, inclusive and safe spaces. SPIN shares and celebrates Deaf culture, identity and belonging. SPIN is a playful disruption of what we think we understand the dance club to be and is essentially a dance performance party that is led by Deaf hosts.
SPIN offers a pleasurable and immersive experience, combining visual and tactile elements of DJ music, sound vibration design from Russell Goldsmith, visual projections from Rhian Hinkley, dynamic dance performance and collective, ritualised movement.
SPIN was created by Deaf contemporary dancer Anna Seymour in collaboration with engagement specialist Bec Reid, DJ Callum Padgham, Deaf Hosts Luke King and Robbie Burrows and dancers Amanda Lever, Jon Clarke and Benjamin Hoopmann.
