One night only! Join us for a late-night disco party as our Workspace Resident Stella Marrs transforms the Squeaky microcinema into the shiny dance hall of your dreams!

Bringing to the forefront the role female desire has played in the rise of popularity of disco music in the 70s, capping the decade with the Disco Demolition Night at Comiskey Park in Chicago in 1979, Stella Marrs’ Disco Deployment Unit: The Sound of Female Desire mixes multiple projections, and an orgasmic soundtrack, reconfiguring Squeaky Wheel’s micro-cinema via an inflatable mylar dome that will cover the space for the duration of the night.

Take a disco nap, and come over to Squeaky at 10pm to watch and dance through a glittery sexy spectacle!
