Performing Arts

An elegant and whimsical extravaganza of costumery, carnival, music, acrobatics, dancing and more..

Edward Gorey (1925-2000) was an illustrator, author, Tony Award-winning costume designer, and fur coat aficionado whose expression of the macabre, blended with mid-19th to early 20th century fashion, has created a cult following and left an indelible mark on the style and couture of much of the circus, burlesque, and burner subcultures. (Check out this NIN video designed to look like a Gorey book for a quick glimpse into his style.) The man is the namesake of the now-quintessential annual Edwardian Ball. Dress your darkest and finest and bring yourself to the immersive experience of the ball: performance, oddities, absinthe and parlor games, along with super sexy burlesque and cabaret by the Fossettes, co-hosts Vau de Vire Society, and more. And for more Goreyesque steampunk fun, don't miss out on Friday's Edwardian World's Faire and Saturday's daytime Edwardian Vendor Bazaar.
