TThe Edwardian Ball® “My Gorey Valentine!” presents Edward Gorey’s “The Beastly Baby”
Paradox Media and Vau de Vire present The Edwardian Ball® on Saturday, February 14th, 2014 at the historic 1920’s Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. The award-winning Edwardian Ball® founders Rosin Coven and co-hosts Vau de Vire Society bring a featured Edward Gorey story to life on stage with original music, theatrical choreography and narration…this year presenting ‘The Beastly Baby’ which is described “a calmly horrific tale about a most unpleasant infant everyone is trying to get rid of…”It’s where literary fans are as welcome as Goth clubgoers and where the high-flying trapeze and steam-powered machines create the backdrop for elegantly dressed ballgoers waltzing their way from absinthe to the dance floor.
Step into a uniquely immersive world, where turn-of-the-century meets world-to-be in a fantastic blend of performance and audience, of sights, sounds, and magic – an irreverently elegant blend of theatre, circus, live music, DJs, ballroom dancing, parlour games, steam machinery, aerial performances, obscure props, period technology, games, fashion shows and an Edwardian inspired Vendor Bazaar.
All in attendance are invited to return to a time of well-dressed gentility by creating characters and costumes for the occasion – instilling a madhouse slapdashery of costumery by nearly every single attendee.
Featuring Rosin Coven, Vau de Vire Society, TRAPEZE DJs Delachaux & The Klown, The Gentlemen Callers of Los Angeles, Gorey-inspired Fashion Show & Living Statues by Dark Garden Unique Corsetry and Bridal Couture, The John Brothers Piano Company, Owl Tree Tarot & Tinctures, Our Famous Portrait Booth, Ballroom Dancing, Rooftop Vendor Bazaar, Midway Gaming and many more TBA. Also, attendees can enjoy absinthe cocktails, full food menu and ample parking.
