Tickets and full information
For this event, neuroscientist and chocolate maker James Wheale of Understory has used his brain research to analyse the set list of the ska band New Town Kings. Based on his results, he designed an appropriate chocolate for every song.
Curated By Rumpus
Gypsy Hill — Imbibe the intoxicating mix of live and electronic Balkan beats and stomping ska, lyrical swing and savage surf rock. You won't know if you're coming or going but you'll definitely be dancing.
New Town Kings- Sweet and heady skanking, rocksteady heaven.
RUMPSTEPPERS — Marvellous, madcap duo play all of the beats all of the night for all of the funtimes
DJ Jamie Moon- London's best dressed DJ with tunes to match! Guaranteed to get you up and dancing!
For over a decade Sencity has been breaking down the barriers of how audiences experience entertainment with multi sensory events around the world.
WHAT IS SENCITY?
Sencity is a multi-sensory clubbing night, which will create your regular night out in an unforgettable experience where all senses will be pleased.
To achieve this experience, we'll make use of aroma jockeys, video jockeys and lighting effects, food jockeys and a vibrating dance floor.
Because of our view on sensory events, we are going to be part of OpenSenses. Open Senses is a weekend festival of art exhibitions, live events and performances, sensory journeys and walks, open studios and labs, and a ground-breaking symposium that will be focused on how senses combine and interact with each other. These activities will be held across multiple locations across London and will make sure that the attendees will have afterwards a complete new perspective on how senses work.
Sencity is a project from Skyway Programs CIC, which is related to the Possibilize Foundation and is realised with the support of the Arts Council England, The Dutch Embassy, FORA workspace and 6D creations.
