Diabolique Ball 2013 – Action AIDS Fundraiser – November 23

Saturday, Nov 24, an event not to be missed.

“The Diabolique Foundation is paying homage to the gratuitous genres of the cinematic underground with its chilling charity event, DIABOLIQUE BALL 2013: GRINDHOUSE HORRORSHOW, at the famous Trocadero Theatre on Saturday, November 23rd

This year, our patrons will be tantalized and terrified by International Pole Dancer Kitty Laveaux while Liberty City Kings Drag & Burlesque brings the glitter and grit to the main stage. There will be fashion shows by Passional Boutique, Delicious Boutique, and BabyLove’s Latex to exhibit their electrifying frocks.

Mighty Mike Saga, DJ Diesel, DJ Totentanz, and DJ Zombie Kitty will be on board to provide enough music to wake the dead throughout the night. And as usual, the ball will be equipped with a complete, interactive dungeon space provided by The Aviary and numerous charity play stations to help exorcise your demons.

As a special treat to tickle the fancy, our attendees will be able to get their gore on by a team of special effects makeup artists, as well as get a chance to meet our very special guests…the stars of Frank Henenlotter’s 1982 cult classic splatterfest, Basket Case!

All proceeds and donated services are benefiting ActionAIDS, a non-profit organization providing services to those with HIV/AIDS in the Philadelphia area.

Don’t forget… the Diabolique Ball enforces a strict fetish, black tie formal and theme-based attire code for entrance, so be sure to dress to kill. Check out our website for more information and ideas for costumes that will definitely pass dress code!

Fearsome fetishists! Killer kinksters! Ravenous rubberists! Vengeful Vixens! And much, much more!”

Forbidden Creature Virgin Whore

Trust me this is not the title of a grade B movie, it is Philadelphia choreographer Amanda Miller’s current contribution to the world of modern dance. Dance critic Merilyn Jackson invited me to join her last night and I was surprisingly impressed by the story-line, choreography and dancing. I’m a former ballet/modern dancer and tend to be too critical.

I had the honor of meeting Amanda after the production and asked her about the creation of the piece. It was interesting to learn about her source materials and collaborative process with dancers.

This is a must see for anyone familiar with modern dance, and especially if you have never attended a dance production. You will not be disappointed.

“Sometimes humorous and sometimes sobering, this new work irreverently unveils the virgin whores, domestic goddesses, and forbidden creatures that litter our collective contemporary psyche.
This piece began as a reaction Miller had to the archetypical female characters in the dance canon; her experiences in Cambodia learning a traditional dance as well as witnessing the Cambodian sex trade; and her life as a ballerina–performing in classical ballets like Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, and Cinderella.  She has thought about how each dance depicts women in some mythological or fantastical situation where a prince saves or destroys them through acts of “love.” With that in mind, her latest work was born. Miller is setting out to replay the iconic female mythologies of classical dance through a contemporary, feminist lens”.
