Dances of Vice
DANCES OF VICE is a monthly dance and cabaret night held in the spirit of the early 20th century days of forgotten elegance, decadence, and creativity. Named after the expressionist Rosa von Praunheim film “Anita: Tänze des Lasters” about Anita Berber, the legendary nude dancer of Weimar Berlin, Dances of Vice carries the theme of rebellion, creative expression, and the triumph of madness and pleasure over societal restraints.
We invite all modern day flappers, dandies, aesthetes, time travelers and ne’er-do-wells to join us in dancing to the hottest tunes of the Roaring Twenties and Dirty Thirties from 10pm to 4am every month in New York City! Please note that Dances of Vice will take place on special dates in January and February, to resume our regular “third Saturday of the month” schedule in March 2008.
Doors open at 10PM, and the live performances will commence at 11:00pm. As always, our aim is to enrich the New York art culture by promoting the music and art we love, and to generate interest and appreciation for the beauty of times forgotten.
Since our debut in August 2007, we have attracted increasing press attention, and established an elegant following of vintage culture enthusiasts from a variety of artistic circles.
