About the Show
A cultural revolution is reDISCOvered. New York City 1970s. Behind the velvet rope, people of every race, class and sexual identity came together, encouraged to wear whatever they wanted, kiss whoever they wanted and, of course, dance however they wanted. Once you were at the disco, there was nothing else. It was just you and the music. Le Freak, Disco Inferno, We Are Family, You Make Me Feel Mighty Real - We Are Here takes the songline of disco's iconic tracks to explore the rise of a popular movement, and the stunning backlash against it.  Forget white suits and mirror balls, this is a celebration of the beat which set the world on fire and continues to unify generations and cultures at a time when we need it more than ever. Set in a transformative, custom-designed environment, this unique live show is saturated with lights, sound, video, and movement.  

The Producer
Spiegelworld is the creator of the hit Las Vegas shows Absinthe, Vegas Nocturne and Opium. Before Absinthe became a smash hit in Las Vegas (now in its eighth year and performing two shows every single night of the year), Spiegelworld developed the raunchy comedy acrobatic show over three summers in its spiegeltent on Pier 17 at the Old Fulton Fish Markets. In 2012, Spiegelworld premiered its New York inspired acrobatic show Empire in its spiegeltent on a vacant block off Times Square before it went on a three year sold-out tour of Australia, Japan, USA and Canada.

Creative Team
The creative team includes acclaimed director Steven Hoggett - Harry Potter and The Cursed Child (Movement, West End / Broadway); What's It All About? Bacharach Reimagined (Director, New York / West End); The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (Choreography, Broadway) Once (Movement, Broadway) - and music by legendary musician, composer and producer Nile Rodgers of Chic fame.
