Truthclub

Led by award-winning choreographer Jonathan Homsey, this is the performance debut of a periodic collective: untitled likeminded dancers of colour.

Presented by Darebin Arts Speakeasy as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival

In a nightclub in a (not-so-distant) future, there is only one place to decipher society and get to the truth.

Enter the TRUTHCLUB, where dance is an antidote to fake news.

TRUTHCLUB is our new home built to shake off systemic false beliefs. Led from the lived experiences of young people of colour, TRUTHCLUB playfully takes the frustrations of Australian prejudices, shakes them up and serves them on the rocks.

A cross between performance art and a 2008 risqué music video, TRUTHCLUB is set to an epic soundtrack by local artists Yeo, Stev Zar, Pookie, Oscar Key Sung, Kuya Neil, Khya, Nefertiti LaNegra & Bhairavi Raman

Across three nights, TRUTHCLUB honours street and cultural dance in a safe haven to speak the truth, address collective experiences and transmute it onto the dancefloor in a cathartic celebration.

Share anonymously your truth of what is on your mind. It can be featured in TRUTHCLUB.
