Electro-Late - Museum of London
ILLUMINI is presenting Electro-Late, a night of electrifying performances, visuals and hands-on activities, at the Museum of London – on Friday, March 11, 2011.
To launch the Museum of London’s Plug In festival, a series of events created by and for young people, the newly refurbished Sackler Hall and Galleries of Modern London will be open late.
Visitors entering the event will be treated to dynamic dance performances in the foyer by young dancers from Union Too.
Flooding the underground space of the lower galleries will be an electro soundscape made up of live tracks created with a mix of turntablism, retro toy twisting, sonic weapon and dirty breaks.
Amid the heavy sounds, those exploring the galleries will discover dancing robots, electronic humanoids and LED dancers, as well as futuristic jugglers and magicians, showcasing their skills, courtesy of Illumini.
Party goers will get to test their creativity by turning their hands to virtual graffiti and have a chance to emulate past London styles, from Teddy Boys and punks to hippies and mods. A photographer will be on hand to capture visitors’ alter-egos, inspired by items from the museum’s collection.
Plug In festival is part of Stories of the World, one of the major projects at the heart of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. As part of the Plug In festival the museum will also be hosting a fresh take on gallery tours, a careers event for young people and an afternoon of youth culture in film.
Times: 6.30pm to 9pm.
Venue capacity: 900 (arrive early to avoid disappointment).
