This weekend, I'll be watching the lovely sensualists at Dances of Vice for their Dark Venus Fetish Ball. I am always looking for something potent, heavy, and changing – something that lets me tap into the darkness and vibrancy I ignore during the work-week.
Dances of Vice events – I've been to several – are usually transformative in some way. They're beautiful, strange, and erotically-charged; every time, I'm lost in a sea of bodies so nuanced, so deliberate, so alive. Shien Lee is the creator – please take a moment to find and follow her. We as a city are indebted to her aesthetic magic and coup on boredom.
Tomorrow night, Saturday, join me on Luna Luna's Instagram and my personal dark Instagram and Snapchat (Lisa Marie Basile) as I get ready for the show. I'll also be sending pics from the event when/if I can. Next week, my diary from the event will be posted here and at Ingenue X.
Here are some images from previous Dances of Vice shows I've been to. I tend to take this quite seriously.
Have you ever been to one of their events?
