Retro Factory Presents "1983"

Friday, June 15, 2018

Theatre C, Zach Job and Chad Ryan, in association with Daniel Nardicio Productions and Long Island City Artists, Inc.​, have come together to create a new series of retro-themed dance parties called RETRO FACTORY​. The past smashes into the present, in this series that brings long-ago eras (and not so distant ones) into an all-night-into-morning affair. The night will be filled with with surprise immersive live performances and visuals in the style of The Donkey Show and Here Lies Love. RETRO FACTORY events will take place at the Plaxall Gallery, a 12,000-sq-foot multi-purpose warehouse galler...y in Long Island City. Our first event is on June 15, 2018 – the weekend before Pride Week in New York.

We #FlashbackFriday to the first totally awesome slated RETRO FACTORY event, called 1983​ — an homage to the legendary gay dance party held at The Pyramid Club in the East Village until 2011. Dance to the rad music of Madonna, the Go-Gos, Wham!, A-Ha!, Janet Jackson, Cindy Lauper, Michael Jackson, Rick Astley, Billy Ocean and more!
