The greatest ship ever built sets sail once more. In the grand ballroom, Golden Angel Waltz Orchestra plays to slow-swaying aristocracy, all sparkling diamonds and rustling silk, while in steerage below, the lower classes stomp to fiddles and accordions. But mere hours later, disaster strikes, and with no escape possible, mayhem ensues. Expect immersive video projections, DJs, and art installations in addition to live bands -- details TK.
In the tradition of turn-of-century Grand Bal art posters, artist duo Teetering Bulb will create a one-of-a-kind piece of art to commemorate the event. Skink Ink Fine Art Printing will run a limited unnumbered edition of 50 12x18 prints on archival cotton rag paper, only available to event guests as bundled with 1st class tickets ($60) or for sale at the door ($75).
Ticket levels*: 1st & 2nd classes board 9pm, and enjoy an hour of complimentary champagne, and a waltz dance class: $95 with custom art print; $35 without. Steerage boards 10pm: $25. If any tickets are available at door, they're $10 more; only $15 after 12am.
Dress code: Turn-of-century-ball meets Mermaid Parade meets zombies. Dress upper class or steerage, before the iceberg or after -- or even as the iceberg itself. Sea creatures most welcome, especially luminescent ones. Ocean explorers, bring your cameras.
*This event is a fundraiser for our new loft party space. Please support at the highest level you can afford.
