About the Show
Yung Lung is a hybrid party/performance for the end of days – a rave on Mount Olympus. It centres around a monolithic audio-visual podium that is a stage for the dancers, possessed and propelled by an extreme barrage of visual content trawled from the depths of the digital universe. The work lays siege to the space as upright techno shatters sound barriers and video burns retinas, in an abrasive communion between hard tech and babyfaced bodies. Yung Lung is a techno treatise and party prophecy where history is buried under feet that stomp beyond the information age.
Yung Lung is designed to be viewed while standing and audiences are encouraged to move about the performance space. If you require seating, please note this when booking or contact The Substation directly.
Yung Lung contains 50% visual content (ie. includes background music and/or sound).
For the performances at 8pm Wednesday 2 February and 9pm Saturday 5 February, an Auslan Interpreter will be provided from 30 minutes before the performance until 30 minutes after the performance. People who use Auslan are encouraged to advise The Substation at the time of booking.
This event is wheelchair accessible and accessible toilets are available.
