8 to 30 November 2019

The Philosophy of Dancefloors was a multimedia performance and interactive live event held at Alternating Current in November 2019. Artist Phil Soliman performed a live DJ set featuring a selection of tracks spanning the gamut of recorded dance music, controlled live visuals, and performed choreographed movements for gallery visitors who were encouraged to dance in the space.

Beginning with the fundamental prevalence of cycles in nature, from the birth and death of galaxies, to our own heart beats, from the rise and collapse of civilisations to the chemical feedback loops that dominate our lives, The Philosophy of Dancefloors brings together the artist’s preoccupations with the human body, queer history, scientific research into psychedelic substances, quantum physics, spirituality and consciousness.
