Club Ark Eternal

This season, KENZO pays homage to nightlife as a powerful source of alternative energies against racism, sexual oppression and class violence. Clubs as exemplars of progressive communities, crucibles of self-invention.

The film “Club Ark Eternal” directed by Partel Oliva with original music by Lafawndah and BR-RR and movement direction by Ryan Heffington is a tribute to club culture at a time of tragedy: “With clubbing spaces obviously needing to be understood and protected, we tried to think of impossible alternatives. With many countries around the world entering a winter of the soul, we wanted to celebrate the kids who go out in 15°F/-2°C.”
