A disruptive, black-owned and black-curated platform demonstrating the viability of every artistic voice, and normalising inclusivity for all artists.
Club Culture epitomises Khaos’ disruptive approach to theatre-making, directly empowering artists & freelancers with a space to test new narratives/works and be a part of an artistic ecology which supports the role of art as much as it does the artist.
Led by Artistic Director James S Barnes. Recent work includes ‘Wolf and Dog’ by critically acclaimed writer, Martin Crimp at the Young Vic Theatre, and ‘Barbie Comes to Tea’ for Tarawa Firsts.

"Welcoming organizers. Nice bar & food. Interesting performances by some talented young people. Great music by Tony Kofi & the Organization. They had most of the room on their feet dancing by the end of the evening. I wish the organizers of this lovely evening every success in keeping it going. Lovely young crowd who obviously had a good evening out."

"Such a brilliant event. a real, honest and well curated range of media and speakers.
The evening really captured the energy of the people, clubs, raves dancing and most importantly the music. A super chill crowd were in attendance, all in all a great night out. Well worth the effort on a school night! Photo journalism, film screening Q&A and delicious food in a great setting. Loved it. Now following CC on IG and really looking forward to the next session. A great initiative."

An artist with boundless depth and fearless devotion, Naomi Banks is a vibrant new talent defined only by her lust for creative freedom.
The UK vocalist and songwriter emerged in 2019, after a number of appearances on stage singing for the likes of Laura Mvula and Lianne La Havas, and collaborating on a studio project with Keane. Inspired early on by studying everything from Jazz, electronica, R&B and soul, her career so far is less defined by any one genre as she firmly finds her lane in the altpop arena.
