Death. Disco. Heartbeat is an intergalactic dance-theatre piece by Dynamotion co-creator, Lara Fischel-Chisholm. This brilliantly joyful work navigates a shifting landscape of loss, loneliness, friendship and resilience using humour and visually rich imagery. There will be heartfelt performances but also disco balls, boobs and a lot of purple.
Made in collaboration with Alice Canton (SNORT, Break Bread) and Cat Fawcett-Cornes (Top Town, Monster Mash), and with direction from Tallulah Holly-Massey (Mammoth, Tender is the Night), Lara presents a eulogy, a love letter... one last mix-tape to a friend who took his own life.
What do you do with that kind of loss? A loss that moves in and makes renovations; a loss that hosts parties and causes a scene; a loss that holds your hand at night and leaves the bed cold in the morning?
But this show is not about him, it’s not about his death, or even his life - it’s about everything that came after. 
Set to an eclectic soundtrack that includes Shintaro Sakamoto, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Sharon Van Etten, Marlon Williams and Chris Knox ‘Death. Disco. Heartbeat’ is the vibrant, energetic, anarchic dance show of our times.
