At times when verbal communication has become purposely and progressively emptied out of meaning through politics and mass media, we search for meaning elsewhere. Sound, tone, gesture, movement, rhythm, resonance and repetition are forms of communication that have been bringing people together articulating shared experiences, before and beyond words in spoken language. Unknown Tongues is a club night / party / gathering that wants to reflect on the creation and nurturing of a community on and around a dancefloor.

Similarly to the exhibition A Gesture Towards Transformation, which tackles how we can free ourselves from set definitions enforced by the power structures of spoken language, this night revolves around ideas of de-constructing and dismantling those structures for experiencing fun that we feel are not representative of us anymore.

Almost like an apotropaic ritual, Unknown Tongues unleashes new energies, creates space for debate for the future translated through movement, laughter, connection, sweat, perseverance and trust.


The venue offers food and a wide selection of beers brewed independently.

This party night is free from racism, homophobia, sexism, ableism and transphobia.
