This Saturday evening, 20 September, Cultivate are opening up their great cathedral space in St Michaels and Johns, Temple Bar to become The Funky Seomra, a space "where you're free to dance anyway you like without limitations, to the lush beats of funky world music accompanied by live African drummers."
I don't have great photos but this may give you an idea of the size of the place:
Even better for a dancer with my
raw talent two left feet they're promising that you can:
- Get energised, liberated and invigorated!
- Loosen tensions, release stress and move deeper within!
- Come to move and not care what others think!
The night, from 7.30 to midnight is organised by David Mooney, a guy who seems to know what he's talking about when he says that dance is good for you. Interestingly (and this is where I may lose you) the night is alcohol and drug free. There's also not much chance of a cramped, overcrowded dance floor or a Sunday morning hangover.
There's live African drumming on the night, with organic snacks and chocolate treats. There's a smoothie bar, a chai and specialist tea bar and a chill out zone for when the dancing gets too much.
It's open to everyone and is one of the four before the end of the year. Fun and funky and different - a nice alternative for a Saturday night.
Tickets are €15 or €10 for Cultivate members and the unemployed and you can find out more information here. Hope to see you there!
