Interview with Social Dis Dance

After their performance at the Sonic Shaman-TheCube Forum Music Festival at the end of 2022, Taiwan’s queer mermaid diva, Betty Apple, and the avant-garde electronic ensemble Social Dis Dance, are invited to perform at the Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain for the newly produced piece MIRAGE ECSTASY, kicking off the annual Luxembourg Art Week.

Before setting off for Luxembourg, Jeph and Amy of TheCube conducted an interview with the members of Social Dis Dance: Betty Apple, Victor and Hoser.

MIRAGE ECSTASY is organized by Casino Luxembourg in collaboration with the TheCube Project Space, marking their fourth partnership. The performance took place on the evening of November 10, 2023 European time, extending into the midnight hours. It is an artistic spectacle combining narrative storytelling, technology, audiovisual, live performance and installations, transforming the Casino Luxembourg into a fluid “oceanic space.” European audiences were invited to immerse themselves in the philosophical contemplations of the body sensations and the rituals of celebration.

EP1: The process of forming Social Dis Dance

In this episode, members of Social Dis Dance discussed how they came together as a performance group and established their roles in creative work, their perspectives on electronic music, and their thoughts on incorporating a sense of “cult” ritualism into their performances through their shared experiences at rave parties.


Social Dis Dance also talked about the liberation of the body at electronic music parties and their interactions with the audience during live performances.
