THE EDWARDIAN BALL At The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles 8pm Saturday, February 8th, 2014

The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles
Saturday, February 8th, 2014   8pm


An elegant and whimsical extravaganza of costumery, carnival, music,
acrobatics, ballroom dancing and fashion; an outrageous celebration of an unforgettable era
while honoring Edward Gorey, the prolific master of ominous storytelling.


LOS ANGELES, CA – Paradox Media and Vau de Vire present award-winning Edwardian Ball on Saturday, February 8th, 2014 at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. 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 Curious Sofa’ described as “the ultimate in pornographic joy, combining naughtiness to the limit of the imagination and laughter to the point of breathlessness.” 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.


The Edwardian Ball is returning to Hollywood’s beautiful Fonda Theatre for a night of music, dance, theatrics, circus arts, ballroom dancing, midway gaming, mischief, and, of course, the art and stories of Edward Gorey! Plus Delachaux, Shakti Bliss, The John Bros. Piano Company, The Klown, Gentlemen Callers, BellHop, Malvoye The Mentalist, Shovelman, Portrait Booth, and Rooftop Vendor Bazaar and Midway Gaming. Dark Garden Corsetry will be presenting their famous fashion show featuring a new collection in vibrant jewel tones, suitable for cocktail parties or the boudoir. Also, attendees can enjoy absinthe cocktails, full food menu by Blue Palms BrewHouse and ample parking.
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. One can expect 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 Edwardian inspired shopping. 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.


The Edwardian Ball is an elegant, whimsical, spectacle of a madhouse slapdashery of costumery and cocktails, circus and storytelling, ribald music, and daring exhibitions that promise to entice and enchant – a feast for the senses with the style and panache of the turn of the 19th century. Where attendees are immersed into a stylish era of elaborately dressed, highfalutin’ Edwardian period fashion, creative goth, steampunk attire and wacky, bizarre and macabre costumes inspired by the eccentric author/illustrator Edward Gorey.

People fly from around the world to partake in this one-of-a-kind event – the SF Ball sold out the last three years. The co-hosts Justin Katz (Rosin Coven) and Mike Gaines (Vau de Vire Society) will present original music and theatrics showcasing Gorey’s ‘The Curious Sofa’ – “the ultimate in pornographic joy, combining naughtiness to the limit of the imagination and laughter to the point of breathlessness.”
