The Edwardian Ball presents Edward Gorey's “The Curious Sofa”
Date: February 8, 2014
The Edwardian Ball at The Fonda Theatre LA on February 8th. An elegant and whimsical extravaganza of costumery, carnival, music, acrobatics, ballroom dancing, theater, circus, games, steam machinery, aerial performances, obscure artifacts, period technology and elaborate fashion shows, while honoring author/illustrator Edward Gorey. This year, founders Rosin Coven and Vau de Vire Society perform Gorey’s “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. Enjoy an elaborate fashion show by Dark Garden Corsetry. Explore the “Museum of Wonders – an Edwardian Odditorium,” and shop the many Edwardian inspired vendors.
