I worked with a rural over 70's choir to perform their standard repertoire in this socially inappropriate site. Viewer/ participants are invited to examine their response to this action. Is it to be empathy or contempt? As the choir sings we realise that their performance is not transformed by the environment of SIN nightclub. They remain indelibly themselves, refusing to alter their music or their performance in response to this heavily sexualised site. Notes are missed, words improvised or confused. Yet despite all the choir communicates with its audience.
The event in addition to being recorded on Super8, HDV and digital stills was recorded with analogue audio. Subsequently we made a vinyl record and I hand painted/designed the covers individually.
Choreography by the dancers (performing the dance sequence from Band a la Parte) was choreographed by Áine Stapleton and Emma Fitzgerald
