Space available in our building!

Starting immediately, you can get space in the building that houses the Gemini & Scorpio Loft! New studio rooms have been built out on the first floor, and we reserved the largest ones to share as office, storage and craft space. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/GS_office (email: "loft" at "geminiandscorpio"). Or, to get your own space, see http://www.bandspacesnyc.com -- the room layout is here. (If you're going to do quieter things, please request our side of the building! It's A-C.)

- 1:30pm-3pm: FREE Drop-In Improv Classes with Letter of Marque Theater Co (no performance experience required). Rooted in the improv techniques of Spolin, Johnstone, and many others, our method focuses on collective success, skipping the judgment, staying present, and tapping into the player’s full instrument. Our work surpasses conventional notions of what improv looks like by bolstering the talents of the people in the room, exploring pan-disciplinary collaboration, learning to laugh at ourselves, searching for the real in the absurd, and celebrating the “strong and wrong.” With over 20 years of teaching experience, the Cpts. of LoM will take your training to the next dimension. LoM's mission is to spread ensemble culture through inclusive, responsive, and accessible theater.

- 3-6pm: FREE 30-min beginner swing lessons with Brooklyn Swings. Brooklyn Swings is a chill place to learn how to swing or blues dance. We offer Level I and Level II series every MONDAY, TUESDAY and in TWO locations in Brooklyn! Plus a weekly dance on FRIDAYS. Come enjoy the the music, dance, history, people and the international community at large.

Miss Scorpio teams up with fellow dress-up addicts and craft-makers for some closet-cleaning and handmade clothing & accessory shopping. Think one-of-a-kind vintage, feathers and fascinators, unique jewelry, and lots and lots of sparkles. Of course even divas have days off, so there will be plenty of cheap casual wear finds alongside costume and vintage pieces. Plus: by-donation champagne & small snacks, chill soundtrack, and lounging in our awesome loft and sprawling roof. This is the Halloween edition, so think creepy crafts and cool costumes.

Hawkins, Indiana. 1983. A little boy is missing. Help us find Will: is he in the forest? Hiding in his secret cabin? Is that him calling? What is making those lights blink?

We're transforming a Bushwick warehouse into an immersive environment directly inspired by Netflix' horror hit "Stranger Things." Enter the upside down...if you dare. Get lost in the forest (by artist Sara Jane Munford). Face off with a mind-reading government agent (Nelson Lugo). Chill in the blanket fort. Eat all the Eggos. Join a seance to find the missing kids (Marcy Currier). Indulge in handcrafted absinthe (House of St Eve) and specially themed drinks. All the while, our DJs will keep the beat going to keep you dancing into the morning.

Costumes required for entry: This is our annual love letter to all things dark and grotesque. Dark + 1980s suggestions for Stranger Things: creepy forest creatures, aliens, Jason, ET, Chucky. Usual Masquerade Macabre style welcome: dark carnival, aberrations of nature, cabinet of curiosities, dark Victoriana, evil funhouse, steampunk, Jan Svankmaier & Brothers Quay films, Freaks, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Yes, all manner of Halloween costumes are welcome as well...but please remember: if we have to ask, it's not a costume (meaning: 1980s casual trying to be a Stranger Things kid won't cut it).

Press: "Live music, dancing, absinthe and the dark arts" - The New York Times. "Late-night absinthe-fueled revelry, with dancing, circus arts, and a Victorian-inspired dress code." - The Village Voice. "Expect off-the-wall antics" - Huffington Post. "Denizens of the night...down absinthe until the sun rises." - TimeOut New York. "Absinthe-fueled debauchery." - Paper. "Vintage-inspired spectacle." - New York Press. "This quintessential New York experience, a costume-required masquerade ball, offers a cornucopia of pleasures guaranteed to keep you going all night (and morning) long." - Flavorpill. "Collection of artists who revel in all things exotic, sensual and creative." - Examiner

*All ticket tiers offer the same access to the event. An additional $25 gets you a commemorative Masquerade Macabre hip flask engraved with the monster hybrid Victorian couple from our usual event flyer. The engraving is vintage-style blind etching, not the modern black laser. We like it classy.
