08.18.07: Radiate Fire!
A night of spectacle, costume, dancing, circus and adventure
Where smoke and mirrors come together in perfect alchemy, there is...fire! Come smolder with us by the amber-hot glow of fire spinners whirling through the night, whipping our glittering, brilliantly-bedecked selves into a lusty frenzy.
The world-famous Spiegeltent, a mind-bending confection of stained glass and dance-loving floors first built in the 1920s, will house high-flying aerial performances. Body Temple drummers set the rhythm, and Alchemy Dance Theater bellydancers set the groove. Special guest appearance by the juicy Peach Tartes, performing tantalizing tidbits from their sold-out all-burlesque Alice in Wonderland show. Afterwards, dance into the morning to the sounds of bass masters 3l3tronic/Devo & Bianca (bassy breaks, progressive and tribal tech-house) inside the tent, and the much-loved Ursula 1000 (jazzy breaks, mod freakbeats, hypnotizing psy-trance) on the pier.
The night is our loving sendoff party for our many creative friends going to the Burning Man festival in the Black Rock Desert. It is frequently burners you see at our events in their stunning costumes, playing, participating, performing. All performances for this event have been donated by generous burners, and to return the favor, we are donating our usual performance budget to offset the carbon footprint of the many New Yorkers heading out to the desert in the days following our event.
Location: Spiegeltent, Pier 17 @ South Street Seaport, Fulton & South St
