Concept 

1979. After leaving behind the decade of chaos and idolatry of the Cultural Revolution, China opens its doors to the world. A fresh breeze sweeps the country from the south. Through a triangular route via colonial Hong Kong, disco music bursts in. A hurricane of synthesizers, lascivious moves, bright lipsticks and wild hairdos storms the Popular Republic. After decades of uniformity and rule of the collective self, the germs of difference and individualism reappear in the ballrooms, floating along with the skirts, reflected in the disco balls. Beyond fashion trends and at the edge of the dance floors, a new room for self reflection opens up. Social status, sense of belonging, gender identity are all mixed up at the cloakroom, and the disco music' s BPMs sets the body into action/reflection.“who am I?”,“what am I doing here?”,“what am I looking for?”. A container of different shapes and nature, difficult to define, an incubator for new trend, Disco is waiting for you。
