Inspired by the art of Sun Ra, the beats of Funkadelic, and the futuristic vision of science fiction, the Omaha team from People in the 7s present, Space is the Place – an Afrofuturistic Dance Party.
Space is the Place is a celebration of Afrofuturism, a growing scene in Omaha’s Black community. With a vision to the future we, the artists, musicians, fashion designers, deejays, dancers and cosplayers, all lend our imaginations to the transformation of the space, and of ourselves, through dance and spectacle.
Deejays mix the sounds of space, jazz from Sun Ra, and Funk from the past and the future over deep house rhythms, tribal drums and hip hop infused futuristic beats. This party is for the dancers, for those that want to celebrate Afrofuturism, and for those that want to transcended the cosmos through music and movement. Guests are encouraged to dress in the most futuristic, Afropunked, cosplay costumes they can pry from their imaginations.
Join us for our kickoff “Early Adopters” party on November 15th, and qualify for some “space perk” in 2020. Starting January 2020, Space is the Place will be every second Saturday at the Reverb Lounge.
Space is the Place is brought to you by People in the 7’s, Mind and Soul 101.3 FM, House of Afros, Capes & Curls and 3RD-i Water.
