Once upon a time, in a blue lagoon not so far from New York City, there lived a village full of beautiful Mermaids. Famous for their dangerous beauty and bewitching songs, these mermaids were known the world over for their charms and talents used for pulling sailors to their doom beneath the waves. Legend tells that for one night in the deep of summer their lagoon is safe for mortal travelers. They ask only that you make an offering to The Sea, and dance with them…
On Saturday, July 24th, an alluring and eclectic group of all-female performers will come together for one night only at The House of Yes for the “Mermaid Lagoon” ocean benefit. Funds will go directly to The Oceanic Preservation Society (creators of the Oscar winning documentary “The Cove”) and to Gulf Coast clean-up efforts.
Kai Altair will perform songs from her solo EP release: Star of The Sea, and the night will also include spellbinding performances by burlesque beauty Veronica Varlow, Ali Luminescent (Coney Island’s Best Mermaid 2009), haunting theatrical dance by Desert Sin, and sea-themed aerial & fire, and glass walking performances by members of Lady Circus. The evening will feature a bio-luminescent lagoon full of bellydancing mermaids and handmade tropical drinks, with DJ Joey Nova spinning a special cocktail of new wave and electro-bellydance all night long.
Those who cannot attend are encouraged to send donations HERE.
Donations over $10 will receive 5 tickets to the night’s raffle.**
