Open Culture and Cartier 4 Everyone present four female artists at one unifying party to jumpstart LightNight into its next phase.

An audio-visual installation blurs into a dance piece; legendary LGBT/BAME archivist Sandi Hughes sets the tone with party tracks cut from 1975 to 2005; the vital global grooves of Giovanna (SisBis) light up the dancefloor further, before the Bollywood/Punjabi pop/club/hip-hop melting moves of south London’s Manara carry us away.

Also features a new work by locally-based video artist Anna Levin, screened 20:30 – 21:30.

Ticketed fundraising party to support LightNight. £4 advance / £5 OTD. Tickets are available to buy here.

Also features the premiere of new video work ‘Binding Ties’. Liverpool-based performer, artist, choreographer and filmmaker Anna Levin has worked with a dancer, costume-maker and composer in creating a dazzling mix of stop-motion cinema and Kabuki-inspired movement. ‘Binding Ties’ is about the relationship between two opposing forces, and a common thread that transforms them, tying them together in unison. With original music by Simon Knighton, this mixed-media video work is chapter one in a story waiting to unfold. From 20:45
