For the first time ever, the infamous Edwardian Ball will be making its tawdry way down the coast from San Francisco and gracing Los Angeles with an evening of exquisitely dark decadence in the historic Tower Theater on the evening of January 31st.
For the unanointed, the Edwardian Ball is a celebration of art, dance, music, fashion and technology all centered around the art and stories of Edward Gorey. It is a unique blend of historical and contemporary imaginations colliding to create an unforgettable evening where the people watching is as integral to the experience as the performances on the stage. There is one small warning – there will be ballroom dancing. So, do get your practice in now, darklings.
Hosted by Cirque Berzerk in collaboration with Edwardian Ball co-creators Rosin Coven and Vau de Vire Society, the evening will be nothing less than an intoxicating ride full of glamour, visual seduction and live performances. Other talent featured includes Helios Jive, DJ Xian, Jill Tracy, Miz Margo, Dark Garden Corsetry, and several special guests.
The event is all ages. Tickets are $30 for general admission and $75 for VIP (which includes reserved balcony seating and a hosted absinthe bar). Tickets can be purchased online here or by visiting Necromance at 7208 Melrose Ave. LA, CA 90046 (323.931.2997).
