Q: Hi Marcia, you’re launching a new Monday night happening at VFD called Wig Out. Can you tell us: what is it? and: do we need to bring wigs…?
A: Wig Out is a place to dance all of your cares away. A cross between a booze-free club night and a choreography-free dance class. Wigs are not required but however you choose to express yourself is welcome at Wig Out.
Q: There seems to be a recent rise in people seeking alternative release and avoiding traditional hedonism. Does this factor into the ethos of your event?
A: Totally. Dancing is a transcendental experience and, while I love a bit of traditional hedonism, there's something special about letting yourself go mental on a dancefloor without the help of alcohol and other animals. It's a very powerful way to get in touch with a primal part of yourself. And, as a woman, it's great to know that you can go out for an uninhibited boogie on your own without having to fight off all the sex pests!
Q: What do people need to know about attending?
A: This isn't a club night so there will be no bar. Just wear comfortable clothes, bring a bottle of water and leave your ego and inhibitions at home.
Q: Why is Monday the new Friday?
A: If you start your Monday with a bang, you'll spend the rest of the week as happy as you are on the weekends.
