Lucy Ireland Untitled Discotheque Project


We are in the early stages of developing Untitled Discotheque Project, a raucous teenage disco where all desires are welcome: the good, the bad, and the twisted. This is a show about lust not love. We originally intended to be in the studio with a team of performers, designers, and a DJ, experimenting physically, musically, and graphically. Given the circumstances, we've moved to online meetings, spread across the two weeks, during which each collaborator shares their obsessions and questions around a topic of their choosing, related to the piece. We're going from music videos to mythological creatures, disco dances to AI, TikTok to nationalism. It's an opportunity to create many zones of thought where we might otherwise not have gone. The hope is to begin rehearsing physically in 2021.
