On October 24th through 26th 2019 in Detroit comes the 12th annual assemblage of extraordinary local and international artists to display their most introspective creations at:
𝐃𝐀𝐌𝐍𝐄𝐃 – 𝐀𝐧 𝐄𝐱𝐡𝐢𝐛𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐨𝐟 𝐄𝐧𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐝 𝐃𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬
From the infamous to the freshest of local and international talent, this prodigious congregation will allow us a glimpse within the diverse shadows of id and ego…of overall mind and encompassing soul guaranteed to intrigue, disturb, inspire or repulse. Rising from within the ashes of Detroit’s historic institution of Devil’s Night, this is not Halloween-themed art but an immersion within the immeasurable realms of consciousness through an elegant ambiance of live ethereal music and cirque/butoh-inspired performances.
There are 3 nights of DAMNED, each with its own distinct theme for the ambiance and performances that flourish within the exhibition:
– 𝐓𝐡𝐮 𝟏𝟎/𝟐𝟒 “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬” – A night of introspective exploration within the shadowed and primal essence of self. This opening night features an intimate VIP Preview/Artist Reception, an absinthe tasting, an on-site chef preparing hot hors d’œuvres and experimental aerial and butoh-inspired performances.
– 𝐅𝐫𝐢 𝟏𝟎/𝟐𝟓 “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐄𝐧𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭” – A night of the extrospective self enlightened through light, fire and the ethereal. This gala night features an on-site chef preparing a sampling of internationally-inspired tapas with flavored mead tasting and exotic fire, aerial and experimental performances.
– 𝐒𝐚𝐭 𝟏𝟎/𝟐𝟔 “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐌𝐚𝐬𝐪𝐮𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐞” – A festive celebration through a menagerie of exotic cirque, sensual rhythms and masquerade. This closing night features the formal mask-mandatory masquerade ball, multiple-dish strolling dinner with live chefs, sensuous dance performance interludes, the aural ambiance of DJs Josh Burge (Plastic Passion) and Slofu (Happy Endings) and a menagerie of strolling cirque performers all night.
For 2019, the DAMNED talented lists of performers include Satori Circus, Detroit Circus, Jade Ashekerra, Shadowe Feuer, Jennabelle Feuer, Stella Isis Rothe and Rocky Raquel, accompanied with live aural ambiance by Dixon’s Violin and Marcus Concernicus.
