The end times are near or, at least, so is NOW-ID’s Second Annual House of Apocalypse Gala. On Saturday, September 24 at 6:30 p.m., Addictive Behavior Motorworks will open its doors to the Queen of Gasoline and all her vampy friends. The bazaar will feature live musicians, dancers, fortune tellers, video projections, an auction and a dance party. This is a 21 and over event with beer and spirits donated from Squatters/Wasatch Breweries and Dented Brick Distillery. Taking place during the upcoming quarter blood moon, the gala is an “excuse to say hell yes!”
Dance Company and host NOW-ID is known for challenging and explosive performances, showcasing local, national and international artists. With a focus on social change, the company focuses much of their work on engagement with the community. This year’s funds will go toward artistic and educational programming and the development of future performances in the fields of dance, design and architecture.
If in attendance, dress dangerously. One of the gala’s best features is the unique fashion answering the question, “what would you wear if if was your last day on earth?” Become part of the experience with hypnotic vibes carrying participants into the night or watch as talented and disciplined performers change current perceptions of art. A few highlights of the Apocalypse include “Whiptress” Melissa Blazen as the “metronome of the Apocalypse” and former Ballet West dancer Kate Linsley.
