The evening centred round a dance performance by Ceyda Tanc Dance, who used the giant screen art as a set for their piece. It was a really impressive piece (says I as an out-of-shape very-ex-performance person) and captured the strange combination of anger and whimsical mystery in the artwork itself.
Anyway, enough with the culture ... this is what I wore:
Excuse the fuzzy picture, it was quite dark. As there was a neon theme and neon is one of the few colour schemes I don't have, I had to ring my sister in a panic. She suggested electric blue... which I do have. A lot of. So voila, it's my old chestnut £1.99 of EBay JC Penney disco dress, along with sequin shoes, belt and a solid glitter resin Hello Kitty pendant. As usual I didn't quite match everyone else but what's new.
There were some fun twists on a normal evening opening. For example, not only was there a bar... it was in the lift! A party lift. This was a great idea as not only was it fun in there, with cider and lethally strong blue cocktails but as it stopped and opened on every floor, it lifted the atmosphere throughout the event as neon-clad dancers and costume scouts jumped out and got everyone else involved.
The Towner is a gem of a gallery, in a state of the art building. It hosts many events and exhibitions, many of which are free - so if you are ever down in Sussex, be sure to pop in!
