With the fall of Assyria in 612BC the dominant power in Mesopotamia was once again Babylon. The so called Neo-Babylonian empire was created by Nabopolassar and his son Nebuchadnezzar II. Babylon was transformed by buildings such as the legendary Hanging Gardens. But its glory days were short lived, and less than 25 years after Nebuchadnezzar died the city was taken by Cyrus II of Persia in 539BC. It lingered on for centuries but its reputation, especially as portrayed in the Bible, meant that it has stayed in the imaginations of people to this day.

Go-go dancing was a high-energy, free-form, dance style of the 1960s. The dancers were employed to entertain crowds and to create a ‘cool’ atmosphere, wearing revealing outfits and calf length boots. The dance style soon reached mainstream media platforms such as the U.S. where girls could be seen suspended in clear plastic cages above the dancefloor. A striking characteristic of go-go, was the fact that girls usually danced alone where previously partner dancing had been the norm.
