About the show:
Inky Cloak’s new show tells the story of two friends who build an underground gay nightclub where devotees can escape the racism, hardship and homophobia that stalk the streets of 1980s London. And it looks like they’re going to conquer the world, until ambition, addiction and the dawning onslaught of AIDS threaten to tear them apart.
At a time when nightclubs are being closed across the capital and rampant gentrification is sweeping away LGBT pubs and bars, We Raise Our Hands In The Sanctuary tells its uplifting story with drama, contemporary dance and the club sounds of the 1980s. It’s a celebration of the crucial importance of queer spaces and the power of gay friendship.
