A celebration of excess.
A fashion show.
A nature walk.
A ritual of rebirth.
This is your invite to the hottest, strangest, faggiest party in a public park. PARTYPEOPLE is an interactive performance journey guided by a silent disco system. Put on a pair of headphones and join STARLIGHT, Kuya Atay and Usman Khan as they lead you on a music video-esque experience of pop music, reveals, meditations and choices.
Choose your own experience and how much you want to engage with the performance. Are you more of a voyeur or are you the life of the party? Passersby are confronted with the outrageous aesthetic of club kid nightlife, witnessing the energy of small club basements, brought into public space.
Together we will imagine the future of queer gathering.
There are three ways to party:
Party Animal – participate in the party with the performance soundtrack
Wallflower – watch the party with the performance soundtrack
Voyeur – watch the party WITHOUT the performance soundtrack
There are also three ways to RSVP:
Party Animal/Wallflower Lottery RSVP
A random draw will decide who will attend as the Party Animals (participate in the party with the performance soundtrack) and who will attend as the Wallflowers (watch the party with the performance soundtrack). The results will be announced via email on Monday August 8th. By entering the lottery you have a confirmed ticket to the party.
Confirms your ticket to the party as a Wallflower (watch the party with the performance soundtrack).
