Aesthetics are pushed to their chromatic extremes in shorts with neon-drenched dance floors, glitter adorned faces and pastel hued dreams.

Dance with us in childhood bedrooms, on cinema back rows and in glitching alternate dimensions, shop with us in queer luxury communist utopias down Essex way, and relive girl crushes and heady first kisses.

Programmed by Jenny Clarke.
