This December, Les Freres Corbusier transforms the Ohio Theater into a fully immersive, bombed-out discothèque as we fuse unmerciful Japanese rave music with deeply regrettable sophomoric comedy in this one-of-a-kind, futuristic dance spectacular, Dance Dance Revolution.
Riffing on fizzy dance musicals like Flashdance and death sport movies such as Rollerball, Dance Dance Revolution is set in an Orwellian society where dance is illegal. A group of local street toughs harbor no hope of overthrowing the fascistic no-fun government—until a mysterious dance prophet named Moonbeam Funk arrives.
Inspired by the wildly-popular video game, Dance Dance Revolution is like Footloose set in the future—but much scarier, and with 50 really attractive, barely-clothed young actors and buckets of free beer.
