Dark Carnivale- Living art and sacred dance.
December 4, 2011 in Events
On Thursday evening Oakland became buzzing with anticipation for the first Dark Carnivale. Pagan, pagan friendly, Goth, and alternative alike all showed up to support local artists, fashion designers, and musicians and the evening was a success!
Dark Canivale began with an amazing fashion show by Tombo Studios, owned and operated by local pagan teacher and Anderson Feri priestess Annaar. As the models took to the runway each ensemble presented a dark fantasy taken from the pages of a gothic fairytale. The designs were original, deep, thought provoking, and evoked the spirit of dance as a mystery tradition.
Shortly after the fashion show bay-area pagan metal and world fusion band Pandemonaen took the stage for a set that had the house moving to siren sounds and swaying instrumentals. Vernerian Process took the stage for a world-class performance ushering the end of the evening.
More events are in the planning stages, stay tuned and we will keep you posted!
