OFFICIAL FESTIVAL PARTY
WILL YOU SURVIVE THE STORM?
Enter a heart-stopping hurricane of strobe, sound and light.
ENTER THE STORM THIS VALENTINES
“A perpetual storm strikes every hour. They call it the storm that came that kept on coming. There are whispers that the storm is man-made. As the lightning illuminates the night sky, people are beginning to talk; perhaps The StormCorp Shelter is not selling safety, but manufacturing fear.”
Set in a dazzling neon wasteland, The Storm is an immersive art-party for those who carry hurricanes in their hearts; an innovative explosion of DJs, light and colour produced by Horseplay (Dressage, IBT13) and Hush (The Night Circus, 2014).
Stow away with us as we transform the Old Bridewell Complex and Island into a futuristic dance-club-storm-shelter and be blown away by specially commissioned lighting, sound and performance as international artists and DJs invoke a storm on the dancefloor.
SUGGESTED DRESS CODE
Storm Survivors – Sudden Showers or Sweltering Heatwaves, Sandstorms or Snow Drifts. Windswept Weather Reporters, Rebel Storm Chasers or Unhinged Geo-Scientists. It’s a weather-apocalypse, so think Mad Max (in a Poncho).
