Disorient & Kostume Kult team up to bring you Black & Light Ball 5 on Saturday, May 15th in Times Square.

Since the last 5 Disorient events have reached capacity, you know what to do now to guarantee entry:

a Disorient sea and space odyssey

Costume Party So Underground, It's Under Water~
Come dressed to digress~

Spearheaded by our local Space Pirates crew, Disorient presents its Philadelphia party premiere--a fundraiser for the 10th year of the Disorient theme camp at Burning Man.

Special thanks to our beloved family members at The Philadelphia Experiment for all their support of our Philly debut. Like Burning Man, this is a LEAVE NO TRACE event. Thank you for cleaning up after yourself.

To guarantee a top quality experience, we do not plan to sell tickets at the door. As Disorient parties (especially with an aquatic theme) and Philly burner parties have tended to sell out lately, please get your tickets well in advance. This event is 21+.

Disorient has very few rules, but two require declaration and elaboration:

1. Respect personal boundaries.
2. Take responsibility for your own experience.

The interplay of these two rules forms a social contract that makes our events safe places to explore your own boundaries while encouraging respect for each other. Talk to those around you about anything that makes you uncomfortable.

By attending our events, you agree to follow these rules. Violating these community values could result in your removal from our events. Please click here to read more about personal boundaries.
