PARTY SCENE: Chemsex, Community and Crisis

Delving into the underbelly of queer culture, THISISPOPBABY present an unflinching and provocative new dance-theatre show about desire, intimacy, isolation and addiction.

Party Scene is a collaboration between choreographer Philip Connaughton and writer/director Phillip McMahon, with a company of incredible performers, that celebrates the sweaty high of the session but asks tough questions about drugs, sex, consent and mental health in the queer community. Looking at Chemsex through an objective lens the show aims to spark conversation around identity, self-worth, isolation, homophobia, family and care within the LGBTQ+ community.

Part urgent gathering, part explosive event, Party Scene asks: when does an underground scene become a community crisis, and when is it time for the party to end.
