Drama has the pedigree of a champion. Launched by Nick House of Mahiki fame alongside Cirque le Soir founders Ryan Bish and Tom Berg, it‘s pulled top talent from all corners of London‘s clubland to create something truly unique. Drama is a sensory explosion - stepping across its threshold is like walking into a kaleidoscope.
Take the bathrooms, for instance, clad in scratch-and-sniff wallpaper. Or the bar, over which performers in nylon throw shapes on an ersatz mezzanine stage, just next to a fifty foot series of mirrored panels inlaid with art deco stage lights that flash, strobe and disorientate. One alcove resembles the Milk Bar from Clockwork Orange, the next might be aquamarine blue, and the next a brilliant carmine red - each one with edgy artwork displayed in a glass case. There‘s a wall of Chinese cats with moving arms.
Champagne is served from LED-illuminated shopping carts.
Before you reach the end of the dancefloor you may be blasted by a co2 or confetti cannon. If you were you‘d just be able to make out the Gold Room though the haze, in which shiny golden surfaces glimmer in the half light and VIPs kick back with gilded bottles of Ace of Spades. This is Bish, Berg and House‘s most grown-up project to date.
