London's most diverse, creative and progressive night returns with 4 rooms of eclectic multimedia from the cream of London's creative underground. Synergy stalwarts are joined by old and new friends to explore global environmental consciousness to become much, much more than just a trance night, with whole food cafes, healing, performance art, drama, poetry, conscious cinema, drum circle and the friendliest of community vibes, Synergy is setting the new standard in post-commercial partying.

Synergy has now arrived – heralded by a growing number as the best party in London, if not the UK, for it’s diverse creativity, high production standards, a friendly and relaxed, unpretentious crowd and for the constantly evolving nature of the project – no two Synergies are ever the same, with new organisations, artists, campaigners teaming up with veterans to produce inspiring new collaborations. Above all, Synergy stands aside from the hedonism and consumption of conventional club-land with the ever present intent of raising awareness of contemporary environmental, social justice and spiritual issues, while generating a strong sense of purpose and a feeling of being part of something bigger, and more meaningful, than the isolated individual.

For the forthcoming event, Synergy welcomes back the Liquid Connective, who will be hosting a room of light, funky psy-trance, brining new and fresh ideas in deco and light installations to the mix. A true celebration of cutting edge dance, trance and live performance. ID Spiral return with their mesmerizing blend of performance art and global chill, conscious visuals and live tunes set in as ever breathtaking environments. This time IDSpiral will collaborate with London Rising Tide, part of a grassroots network, confronting the root causes of climate change and promoting local, community-run solutions to our energy needs. The Spiral Chill will also host the Conscious Fashion Walk - an initiative to combine ethical designers and NGO's to raise awareness on the ills of the global Fashion Industry whilst wearing positive solutions such as organic textiles, hemp, fair trade, worker's co-op and DIY fashion. The Small World Stage, stringing together live musicians from around the world, also returns with their uniquely diverse array of performers. The Gallery space welcomes the Gods and Goddesses Galactic Cabaret, hosted by Galactic Federation Agent 82 a.k.a. Paradox and features the cream of London’s progressive performance poets, singer song-writers and the legendary open mic session.

Synergy are also proud to welcome the return of Shamanic rapper and ritual theatre host John Crow for a roaming presentation of Participatory Synergistic Intervention, a short drama which will spontaneously manifest itself throughout the party during the course of the night. This ritual drama-happening will be developed from scratch in a workshop held early in the night - so come early to make sure YOU are in it!!! It is conducted by the director, playwright, poet and performer John Constable aka John Crow - the author of The Southwark Mysteries and the man who adapted Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast for the stage. John is regularly seen performing his own highly original performance work at Synergy - now he's encouraging you to bring out your inner performer.

A vibrant Conscious Fringe hosts campaign stalls from non-governmental organisations such as Oxfam, Actionaid, Survival International, Corporate Watch and Tourism Concern alongside whole food cafes serving chai, organic cakes and vegetarian sushi and healers practicing massage and other relaxation therapies.

All this, for less than the cost of many run of the mill night of DJs and the occasional live act: £15 on the door, with a £10 concession for students or the unemployed (current proof required)

Advance tickets can be purchased on line, via Access All Areas or via 0207 678 8320. For group bookings and discounts please email info@thesynergyprojec.org
