The Synergy Project

Friday, 10th March 2006
SEOne Club London Bridge, Weston Street, SE1 London UK

We returned for yet another magical night of art, dance, and inclusive diversity – undoubtedly one of London’s most creative and inspiring club experiences

As anyone who ever went would know Synergy gathers an incredibly colourful and vibrant crowd whilst managing to cast a critical eye on the troubled social and environmental situation of our planet. Embedded within a powerful celebratory context that caters for some of the most eclectic taste buds Synergy offers a glimpse into a different reality, bringing together artists and campaigners from London’s alternative and environmental community.
Exploring new ways of living and working Synergy is seeking a healthier and more
harmonious co-existence.

Have a look at the creative players:


in the Main Room…

One of London’s most acclaimed positive vibe tribes promoting self expression through electronic uplifting and inspiring music and dance. In collaboration with Frolic Productions, renowned for putting on breathtaking multimedia displays, they will present the trance room for this Synergy event. Fairytales have always focused their club concept on the importance of transforming the surroundings of a party experience – connecting the individual/collective “conscious learning” of such an experience though a structured and cutting-edge multimedia interaction. A journey through stripped down panoramic dubs via progressiveness in trance sounds & dances exploding in kaleidoscopic morning frenzy!
